Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Gamble's concern for threatened exotic wildlife translates into an impassioned text, illustrated by Rodney Griffiths's elegant photographs that capture the big cat with the lens. Gamble's style is straightforward and succinct with touches of lyricism. The presentation of the leopard and two variants, the clouded leopard and the snow leopard, speaks vividly of life in the wild. Contributing to the book's use in lesson planning and individual research are a distribution chart, three maps of the species' global habitats, a brief list of suggested readings, and details of the leopard's size, reproduction, and life history. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, World Life Library, dist. by Voyageur, 48p. illus. map. bibliog. index., Ages 15 to adult.
—Mary Ellen Snodgrass
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Gamble writes and edits film documentaries on wildlife, and this book reads like one. The text offers a comprehensive look at these endangered animals and raises awareness of various efforts to preserve their habitats and to save them from extinction. Excellent-quality photographs appear throughout. Distribution maps show where leopards live, and a fact sheet with recommended reading is appended. An attractive and informative addition.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
