There are color photographs throughout the book and insets with additional information. Bold print words in the main text are listed and described in the glossary.

There is a list of books and websites for students wishing to pursue additional information about tigers. Students may benefit by having discussions about the issues regarding this animal.

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Two attractive titles about big cats. Accompanied by handsome color photos (including many close-up shots and at least one per double-page spread), information boxes, and a global-location map, the readable, brief texts provide some basic data regarding size, habits, diet, mating, and life spans of these creatures. If you already own such standards as Ruth Ashby's Tigers (Atheneum, 1990; o.p.), Lesley DuTemple's Tigers (Lerner, 1996), Caroline Arnold's Lion (Morrow, 1995), Kathy Darling's Lions (Carolrhoda, 2000), or Seymour Simon's Big Cats (HarperCollins, 1991) you may not need these volumes, but they are fresh and eye-catching and will interest animal lovers and report writers.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
