Prin the Rockhopper
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Prin peeked out from between her rockhopper father's knees. She was now three weeks old.
 
2     She squawked, hoping to attract his attention. Rockhoppers were not large to start with, and her parents' nest was right behind a large rock. So much for a nest with a view!
 
3     Prin tried to wriggle out of the stony nest, but Dad held firm.
 
4     "Stay where you are, Princess," he squawked at her.
 
5     "I want to go out and look around," she replied.
 
6     "Not yet," he said. "You are not big enough. If you wander alone, you might be attacked by a skua, petrel, or even a gull. They like nothing better than to eat little rockhoppers."
 
7     Prin crouched down again. She did not want to be seen. She did not want to be eaten.
 
8     The little penguin tried to be patient. Mom came once a day to feed her. The adult penguin's feathers smelled like salt from the ocean.
 
9     Finally, Momma came one day and fed Prin until she could eat no more. Prin felt like she could hardly move.
