this book is okay because i read it but it was a little boring to me but i would still recomend this book to a friend if they are interested in these kind of books.
The book Spotting the Leopard was a good book. I think it teaches people to understand animals and help them. Spotting the Leopard was about this boy who was trying to save a run away leopard, Lucky and help his sister to go to college and become a vet. Well, things didn¿t work that well, but things still worked out. It is a really good book, and I mean it. I just love animals, especially cats. Since Leopard are in the cats family. It¿s really interesting that a boy would give up everything just to help a leopard. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves animals. I would rate this book 8 ½ from 1 to 10. I think this book would change the way a person thinks about an animal. Like, Kate thinks no one like animals, but after she read this book, she¿ll understand what a person would do to help an animal. Even though I rated 8 ½, I have some criticisms to make. First I don¿t think the situation with Uncle Delbert and Mr. Summer doesn¿t really have to do anything with the book. And another criticism I will make is that I am not that sure what time period this happened. The author could explain more about the background to give us clues about what time period it happened. Over all, I think this is a great book.
