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.


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.


‘vivid watercolor illustrations that meld ink-brush abstraction and subtle detail into a gorgeous fantasy.’ The New York Times
