Reviews

Arresting charcoal portraits of endangered animals, drawn in near-photographic detail, command attention in this counting book...Endnotes offering information about the animals and their endangered statuses conclude this powerful tribute to vulnerable creatures.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Walton's photo-realistic charcoal portraits are exquisitely rendered, and the decision to depict several from a head-on perspective ensures that readers will make direct eye contact and empathize with these creatures...this handsome offering makes an excellent introduction to this topic.
--Booklist

A large part of its allure relies on its large size and the conscientious design of the pages...It's beautifully executed.
--Kirkus Reviews

A stunning portrait of beautiful creatures in a book with a strong environmental message.
--School Library Journal

A profound and transfixing look at the endangered animal residents of our world.
