The Lovereading4Kids comment

Jackie Morris's poetic text weaves the spirit of nature into a universal myth for our time. Set against the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas, her beautiful illustrations of the nearly-extinct Snow Leopard offer a message of hope at a time when many of the world's wildest places are being worn away by human beings.

Synopsis

The Snow Leopard by Jackie Morris

From the beginning of time, Snow Leopard has woven words of protection to keep the hidden valley safe from the world. But time is passing, and Snow Leopard needs to find a singer who will follow her.

Reviews

'both stunning and lyrical, this is possibly my favourite of Morris'

-hardback edition , resplendent with jacket and foil, is something I would be delighted to find in my stocking.
