Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A young snow leopard knows only the comfort of his mother's love and the warmth of the mountain cave in which they live. But on a clear, blue-sky day, she shows him the world where he will one day be "a fine snow leopard, great hunter, King of the Mountains." Seeing the splendors of the land and the other creatures of his new realm, Little Mist is anxious for his adventure to begin, but until it does, he curls up in his mother's soft fur. But unable to sleep, he looks out of the cave at his world. "Little Mist couldn't wait to begin." Full-page, lush watercolors as soft and warm as Little Mist illustrate this quiet story of a mother's love and guidance, making this a special treat for both younger readers and those who read to them.—Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, formerly at Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY
Publishers Weekly
In an extended soliloquy, a mother snow leopard introduces her cub, Little Mist, to the magnificent Himalayan wilds and the animals that live there. "This is the world," she tells Little Mist as they emerge from their den to a landscape of snow-covered peaks. "This is your world." Fox-Davies's (Do Rabbits Have Christmas?) watercolor and pencil drawings portray craggy mountain wilds and cuddly snow leopards with equal skill. McAllister (Yuck! That's Not a Monster!) makes Little Mist's mother's predictions engaging (if occasionally a little pompous)—"Soon you'll chase butterflies in the cloud forest and jump mountain streams"—and Little Mist's suitably childlike: "I like jumping!" Little Mist's mother stays focused on her initiation of Little Mist into the world at large as she introduces him to the animals of the Himalayas: "But one day you will be bigger than the red panda that sleeps in the old oak tree.... Sleeker than the shaggy yak that roams across the grassland." Young readers will be lulled by the incantatory quality of the text and drawn to the snow leopards, who look as friendly and welcoming as they do dignified. Ages 2–6. (Apr.)
Kirkus Reviews
Under his mother's tutelage, a snow leopard cub's possibilities expand with wonder as he explores the pristine mountain world he inhabits. After spending his days in the warmth of the cave where he was born, a bewildered Little Mist follows his mother outside where everything's "bright, singing blue and crisp, sparkling white." As Little Mist romps in the snow, his mother tells him, "This is your world," and shows him how incredibly "far and wide" it stretches. When Little Mist gazes at his reflection in the water and realizes how small he is, his mother assures him one day he will be bigger than the panda, stronger than the wolf, faster than the bear, sleeker than the yak, bolder than the deer, more secretive than the sheep and free as the wind. At day's end, mother and cub return to their den, from which Little Mist surveys his new world with wide-eyed expectation. Gentle, realistic watercolor-and-pencil illustrations in whites, browns, greens and blues mirror the palette of the snow-covered mountains, rocky riverbeds and green meadows. Vignettes of mother and cub snuggling, playing and exploring emphasize the close bond between parent and child, while panoramic vistas of mountains, lakes, rivers and waterfalls convey the grandeur of Little Mist's world. Appealing reading for mothers and their little cubs. (Picture book. 2-6)
