Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tigers, unlike most cats, love the water and spend plenty of time swimming. Welsbacher compares this large cat to its domestic counterpart—both are agile and have whiskers but tigers can both purr and roar. Tigers are the biggest of the wild cats, they all have stripes and they are all different, like human fingerprints. Tigers have poor eyesight and a poor sense of smell so they depend on their hearing. They do not fight each other but tend to hunt and eat alone, although a picture shows a pair with a dead animal. This book is filled with engaging photographs appropriate to the text. At the end of the text, there is a glossary, a list of Internet sites that relate to the "Wild Cat" series of which this book is a part, and an index. 2000, ABDO, $19.93. Ages 5 to 8.
