Synopsis

Paw Prints in the Snow by Sally Grindley

The first in a series of four books following the adventures of a family involved in animal conservation. Nail-biting, exciting and based on fact, this is a story with punch! Two children accompany their parents as they travel the world helping animals on the verge of extinction. As their parents work alongside international agencies, the children have their own thrilling adventures.

When Joe and Aesha's mother is given an assignment to train young vets, the Brook family visits an important nature reserve near Lazovsky in eastern Russia. In this spectacular snow-bound landscape, Joe is thrilled by the prospect of glimpsing a rare Amur tiger in the wild. Alongside the fieldworkers, the Brooks get involved in tracking local species, such as the Asiatic black bear and the raccoon dog. However, the tigers prove elusive - until Joe's interest in wildlife photography leads him to make an unexpected discovery that puts his very life in danger.

Paw Prints in the Snow is written with the assistance and guidance of London Zoo's conservation team. All information is accurate and the stories are full of excitement and tension. Sally Grindley is the author of bestselling and award-winning fiction for young readers. Here she brings to life a story of hope set in Russia.
