The Leopard Son: A True Story by The Discovery Channel, Jacqueline A. Ball, Kit Carlson, Jacqueline A. Ball

Bringing the Leopard Son Home to Stay! Adapted from the Discovery Channel's wildlife feature film about a young leopard's coming-of-age,this true story of life on Africa's Serengeti plain transports children and their parents into a world both dangerous and delightful. There,they will share the adventures of a real leopard cub,whose growing up was painstakingly filmed by acclaimed naturalist Hugo van Lawick. From a tiny,fluffy cub,secure in the trunk of an acacia tree,the leopard grows into a capable hunter,finally able to live on his own. Bounding around the feet of a giraffe,exploring a snake eagle's nest,wrapping himself in his mother's long,slender tail,he discovers how to hunt,how to hide,and how to stay one step ahead of trouble. This rare and authentic rendering of a young leopard's early life—never before captured in such intimate detail—will enchant readers of all ages.
