Reviews

* "Bishop's stunning cheetah photographs will draw readers into this appealing and balanced picture of a conservationist at work."
--Kirkus, starred review

"Striking photographs of the cheetahs, the people and landscape of Namibia, and the conservationists fully capture the dedication of these scientists, and the awesome power of the cheetahs."
--Horn Book Magazine

"Bishop's extreme closeups can't capture the cheetahs' blinding speed, but the cats' movie-star glamour is on prominent display, especially in a few breathtaking extreme closeups."
--Bulletin

"Along with sharp views of the facility's experts and student volunteers working with cheetahs and taking general wildlife counts, Bishop provides plenty of stunning cheetah photography--both full-body and head shots--to beautifully complement Montgomery's detailed descriptions of daily routines, research projects, and medical procedures."
--Booklist

* "This is a readable, informative and elegant book on an equally elegant feline."
--School Library Journal, starred review
