3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The more you find out about penguins, the more they seem to have in common with another oddly endearing flightless biped. Namely, us. —Flipping Brilliant Think March of the Penguins meets Life's Little Instruction Book by way of National Geographic. Award-winning nature photographer Jonathan Chester captures the essence of the Antarctic's most popular residents to illustrate the similarities between penguins' lives and our own. Patrick Regan's clever narrative offers surprising insights and humorously entertaining life lessons. The appeal of penguins is undeniable and universal. And we can learn a lot from these fat, funny birds. Lessons like: * The meek sleep alone, * It's better to be smart than cute and * You can be too thin. (After all, the book explains, if the Olsen twins ever get locked in a walk-in cooler for days and are forced to live off their own body fat, they're goners. Penguins? They're good for months.) Flipping Brilliant includes helpful environmental information about the penguin habitat and the effects of global warming, including Web sites that show how you can help

An old fashioned Christmas by Patrick Regan( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nothing captures the magic of Christmas like the drooling face of a child and a cheap-ass little fake tree." —An Old-Fashioned Christmas In the tradition of Holidays on Ice and Bad Santa, Patrick Regan counters saccharine seasonal sentiment with a dose of holiday-noir. Remember Christmases of old? Simpler times, when four-year-old orphans were used for market research and Santa could call a pretty elf "Sweet Cheeks" and not get slapped with a sexual harassment suit? In An Old-Fashioned Christmas, author Patrick Regan collects images from the golden days of Christmas and pairs them with wryly sardonic captions to offer a reminder of what Christmas is really all about-namely, "hobos, orphans, boozed-up Santas, pill-popping housewives and the shattered dreams of adorable children." Fans of Regan's The Book of Bad Habits will take twisted delight in his skewering of the most cherished (and overstuffed) holiday of all. The 1940s, '50s and '60s-vintage photos are odd enough on their own, but when Regan's caustic captions start flying, no tradition is safe from mockery. Christmas just ain't what it used to be, and judging from the subversive gems in this more naughty-than-nice book, we should all be extremely grateful for that
To love is to fly by Jonathan Chester( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anyone who's ever been in love knows that this supreme emotion changes everything. When love is real, it sometimes feels like gravity itself doesn't quite apply. In To Love Is to Fly, this magical and powerful journey is told through photographer Jonathan Chester's stunning photography of penguins, along with refreshingly heartfelt prose. To Love Is to Fly is written from a me-to-you perspective, making it a great gift for spouse, partner, or main squeeze. Highlights include an image key denoting the type of penguin, environmental features, location details, online resource links, and facts about the different species in each photo. With their upright stance and bemused expressions, penguins are the most humanlike of birds. Like us, they sacrifice for their families, are mostly monogamous, and must adapt to survive in a rapidly changing world. Also like us, it's impossible for them to fly. But doesn't love make anything possible?

I'm a lucky duck to have a mom like you
