This book shows readers the battle that occurs when a lion tries to eat a gazelle.
Children's Literature - Paula RohrlickThis volume in the strikingly designed "Predator vs. Prey" series looks at what happens when an African lioness attempts to make a meal of a Thomson's gazelle. The animals are depicted in large, close-up full-color photographs, and the brief text provides details like their sizes and weights, what they eat, and how they attack and defend themselves. A map indicates where in Africa these enemies live. Bright yellow "Did You Know?" insets highlight fascinating facts, like how high a gazelle can jump and why lions have soft pads on the bottom of their feet. The creatures' encounter is related in the present tense in play-by-play fashion, which helps to heighten the excitement, and the outcome may surprise some readers. A glossary of terms and a brief bibliography of books and websites are appended, along with an index. Others in this sure-to-appeal series, which would be a great choice for reluctant readers, include: : Tarantula vs. Bird; Crocodile vs. Wildebeest; Dolphin vs. Fish; Lion vs. Gazelle; Owl vs. Mouse; Shark vs. Penguin; and Wolf vs. Elk.
