School Library Journal; - Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA

"Each book describes the physical characteristics, habitat, diet, predators, and prey of the featured cat, and the effect it has on the environment. The books also discuss the animals’ approximate populations or nearness to extinction. The pages are well balanced with excellent photos, text, factual asides, maps, and the definitions of boldface words. The photographs were taken in the wild in the cats’ natural habitat and include kills and skins. Similarities and differences among the types of cats are evident if children read more than one book in the series. Laws, poaching, illegal trafficking, and endangerment are discussed. In Mongolia there is a program for the protection of the snow leopards; it provides money to families who promise not to kill them. The money is generated from the sale of goods such as mittens, scarves, and yarn made by the families and sold for them in the United States. Perfect choices for reports." - School Library Journal;

Claudette Hegel

Claudette Hegel

Claudette Hegel grew up on a farm in North Dakota. Her father was barely able to read at all and her mother rarely read a book. That didn’t stop Claudette from learning to enjoy reading, researching, writing, and collecting books. Most of Claudette’s many publications, including eight books, are for children or about children’s literature. She has collected all of the approximately 700 Newbery and Caldecott Award books, including all honor books. Claudette lives in Bloomington, Minnesota, with her cat, Mewsic, named after her book about music.
