The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal.

The Judges said: The stunning portraits of the animals help the reader appreciate their beauty. Close-up observation and detail bring the animals to life. Flashes of colour are used sparingly but to great effect. The perspectives used, and the use of blank space, give this an extraordinary impact. A beautiful book.

---------

A visually stunning and informative picture book about the world’s endangered animals. With breathtaking illustrations this large-format picture book tells us about the threats to the many endangered species on our planet and the need to prevent their extinction. The images of the tigers appear almost real and ready to jump off the page. This is a truly special book and very informative for almost any age.

Synopsis

Can We Save the Tiger? by Martin Jenkins

Tigers are big, beautiful, and fierce. But, like many other animals, they are in danger of becoming extinct.
