Tiger: Lord of the Jungle by Alain Pons, Francois Moutou
Despite it's unmistakable striped coat, the tiger remains a mysterious being, glimpsed fleetingly before it melts into its dense habitat. This richly illustrated work brings us close to Asia's iconic big cat, revealing how it lives and how it interacts with others of its own kind. It also considers the threats to the tiger and its habitat, and examines the measures being taken to save this magnificent creature from extinction.
Alain Pons began his career as a graphic designer and helped with the launching of wildlife magazines such as l'Univers du Vivant and Terre Sauvage. Philippe Huet is a naturalist, travel writer, documentary maker, producer and former chief editor of the magazine, Science and Nature.
