Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The lion is truly the "king of beasts." With its golden eyes and impressive mane, this magnificent feline symbolizes all creatures wild and free. Unlike other big cats, lions live in societies. One male rules the pride, and though the females hunt and kill the pride's prey, they aren't subservient to the male. All females in the pride have their cubs around the same time and share in raising, nursing and protecting the offspring. As in all titles in the "Big Cats" series, the book concludes with a chapter about man's hunting lions to near extinction. This book could spark a discussion about conservation and the importance of saving animals in the wild, particularly key species like the big cats. The easy to read text is broken into one-page chapters. Full-color photographs face the text. Back matter includes books and videos, zoos and animal parks, interactive web sites, a glossary of terms and an index. 2002, Gareth Stevens,
