This book is about a snow leopard that was rescued when it was little and later when he got big enough was given to the Bronx Zoo in New York. It is a wonderful story and tells how leopards live and what they need to live. I gave this book a five out of five because the book was interesting and the pictures were wonderful. All of the photos also have captions which I thought was great also.
My sons and I wanted to know more about Leo.
