Grade 1-3?Another eye-catching presentation from the creators of Shadow the Deer (Viking, 1993). The simple, yet descriptive, slightly anthropomorphized narrative includes many dramatic elements of animal adventure stories?the mother protecting her cub, battling against adverse weather conditions, and constantly struggling to find food. The book concludes optimistically as the female snow leopard stalks sheep in the valley at the end of this arduous journey. Double-page paintings immerse readers in the desolate, wintery habitat (identified in the flap copy as Nepal, but never mentioned in the text). The cats at rest, on alert, and trudging through the snow are realistically portrayed. Light and shadow allow their coats to appear in tones from tawny to silvery gray as they traverse rocky and snow-covered terrain. Unfortunately, while the italic typeface enhances the overall beauty of the book, it may be somewhat difficult for children to read. Nevertheless, this title will attract youngsters wishing to experience the adventures of creatures in the wild.?Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
