This is an odd mix of measurement and prose. The discussion of penguins is interesting, but in the middle of otherwise "normal" prose, the author starts machine-gunning numbers--weight, height, latitudet, longitude, etc. Which made it a bit hard to read in places. The pictures are delightful, though, and I learned a lot about pengins I didn't know! Interesting.
