Simon returns to the animal world with a striking presentation
of seven members of the cat family: those that roar--the lion,
tiger, leopard and jaguar--and those that merely purr--the puma,
cheetah, and snow leopard.
The grace and power of big cats—lions, tigers, leopards,
jaguars, cheetahs, pumas, and snow leopards—are captured in
full-color photographs and a text that explores how they hunt, care
for their young, and rest in their varied natural habitats. ''The
combination of action shots and the author''s practiced, informal
style will win the attention of young readers, with whom Simon
charges the future of big cats.
