With their large, colorful beaks, their upright posture, and their big, dark eyes, it's easy to see why puffins are popular all over the world. Biologist Stephen Kress decided to try to bring puffins back to Maine with an experiment that had never been attempted before. Stunning color photographs and fascinating puffin facts on every page capture each step of this wildlife success story.

Note: Project Puffin was named a 1997 Smithsonian Institution Notable Books for Children and an NSTA/CBC 1998 Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children.
