Tigers (Big Cats Series)

by Victor Gentle, Janet Perry

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The tiger is thought to be the most magnificent creature on earth. The reader is drawn into the world of the tiger, starting with the cover photograph of a full-grown tiger wading powerfully through a river. Unlike most cats, tigers do not avoid water. The 24-page book, part of the "Big Cats" series, begins with how cubs develop and learn to hunt. The animal's behavior is covered and illustrated with well-chosen, full-color photographs. The eight types of tigers are referred to but not named, though the critically endangered Chinese tiger is mentioned. While this is a book aimed at younger readers, the authors do not tiptoe around the fact that tigers in the wild most likely will become extinct. Back matter includes books (fiction and nonfiction) and videos, zoos and botanical gardens to visit, web sites with links to tiger preservation groups, a glossary of terms and an index. 2002, Gareth Stevens,
