Synopsis
A new Nature Storybook about one of the most beautiful creatures in the world, with words by BBC Planet Earth director Justin Anderson and pictures by Patrick Benson, the bestselling illustrator of Owl Babies. "Something moves in the rocks ahead. My hands start to tremble. My heart is beating fast. There, just a few footsteps away, is a snow leopard..." Join us on a journey high into the snowy peaks of the Himalaya, and discover the secret world of a rare and utterly majestic creature - how it has adapted to the harsh environment it lives in and how it looks after its young. Complete with an index and a conservation note, this is a wonderful addition to the series and the debut of an exciting new voice in non-fiction writing for children. "Enchanting" Barnes & Noble "The formula for Walker Books' nature series is a blend of evocative writing, supplementary facts and sumptuous illustrations, and it's a winner." BBC Wildlife Magazine

The formula for Walker Books' nature series is a blend of evocative writing, supplementary facts and sumptuous illustrations, and it's a winner. * BBC Wildlife * Complete with an index and a conservation note, this is a wonderful addition to the series and the debut of an exciting new voice in non-fiction writing for children. * LoveReading4Schools * It is a fascinating, adventurous and moving story. Illustrated with the spectacular work of Patrick Benson, this world and seldom seen animal is imprinted in the imagination and heart of all. Eloquently written, there is such beauty related in both the words and pictures that you will be haunted by the extraordinary wonder of the 'Grey Ghost'. * Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories * Patrick Benson's illustrations portray the Himalayan mountain communities near where the snow leopard lives, as well as the cat herself, who stalks through the snow on extra-large paws that serve as snowshoes to keep her from sinking. The leopard hunts ibex, raises cubs, and beds down in a cave during a fierce Himalayan storm in this enchanting story. * The B&N Kids Blog *
