Summary

Summary

Young big cat lovers with a lion's appetite need hunt no further for all the facts and illustrations about their favorite feline predators. Evocative text and specially commissioned artwork give the young reader a fascinating insight into the secretive and stealthy world of big cats, from the leopard storing food up a tree and the Indian tiger keeping cool in water, to the jaguar catching a turtle, and the cheetah proving it is the fastest animal on earth. The double-page spreads overflow with colorful illustrations, fact panels, and essential information. Includes an illustrated glossary and index.
