First in a new children's series from the Cornell Lab Publishing Group and award-winning author and artist, Caren Loebel-Fried, A Perfect Day for an Albatross sweeps you into an albatross’s world of wind, rolling seas, boisterous dancing, and their intense commitment to one another and their nestlings. Set on Midway Atoll, where 72 percent of the world’s Laysan Albatrosses make their nests, Malie, an albatross, must protect her egg until her mate returns. Join Malie as she dances, hunts, and soars over the ocean swells.
