In Antarctica, the male penguins hatch their eggs, while the female penguins look for food. One day, there was a male penguin named Gauche hatching his eggs. The mother penguin was lost while looking for food in the ocean. While Gauche was hatching, a golden penguin came. Gauche was astounded because of her color. The golden penguin helped him and gave him food for the season, then she left without a reason.

The next season, Gauche met a silver penguin. He was astonished of her color and impressed with her skill in catching fish. He was supplied with fish for the whole season, then she left without a reason.

The next season, a Gentoo penguin arrived without anything. She was so sad because she couldn’t catch a fish, for she was still a tyro. Gauche taught her how. He told her all the techniques that he learned from the golden and silver penguins. Gentoo helped Gauche the whole season, then she left without a reason.

The next season, Gauche and his family are starving to death.  The golden penguin passed by without anything and couldn’t do anything.  The silver penguin also passed by without anything and couldn’t do anything.  But the Gentoo penguin brought him fish  for the season  and did it for a good reason.
