"Stunning photographs laid out over a bold color palette of oranges and greens will entertain readers and have them gushing about the beautiful big cats... A strong addition for any children's collection, especially where Deborah Lee Rose and Susan Kelly's Jimmy the Joey: The True Story of an Amazing Koala Rescue and Lucy Cooke's A Little Book of Sloth are popular." -- School Library Journal
