Reviews

Illustrated with striking color photography throughout, Seeking the Snow Leopard is a nonfiction picturebook by World Wildlife Federation mountain guide and naturalist Jon Miceler. The true story of how a team of expert scientists and conservationists temporarily tranquilized, studied, and released a snow leopard - outfitting it with a radio collar that would enable its movements to be tracked for almost two years - all to learn more about these majestic and beautiful animals. Seeking the Snow Leopard is fascinating to page through, and highly recommended especially for school or public library picturebook collections. --Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Choice, The Pets/Wildlife Shelf
