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.
