Q: Why did you write PLAYING WITH PENGUINS AND OTHER ADVENTURES IN ANTARCTICA?
A: Everyone loves penguins! I went to Antarctica two times to write this book. I never thought I would see hundreds of thousands of penguins and have so many adventures. I turned my adventures into a story of a young girl who sails on a ship with her grandmother “to the white bottom of the world.” She writes about her many adventures in a diary. I took most of the pictures in the book, too.
