When the Little Penguin was born, he was covered in soft gray feathers.  He didn't look like his father at all.  His father was an Emperor Penguin and had beautiful white feathers and black feathers.  Little Penguin longed to be like his father but knew he must grow up first.  One thing his father always told him was to stay close and not wander off.  The ice could be very dangerous.  What happens when Little Penguin doesn't listen and is separated from the rest?
