In the same First Books: Animals series as Saign's The Great Apes (1998), this combines dramatic wildlife color photographs with a lively, informative text. After a general introduction that includes facts about evolution (with a double-page family tree), Saign looks in turn at each of 10 African cats, from the lion, leopard, and cheetah to the tiny sand cat. In each case, he discusses basic issues, such as where they live and how they hunt, mate, and care for their young. A final section focuses on conservation and includes a chart on the estimated population of each cat. With a glossary and a resource guide for books, CD-ROMS, and organizations, this attractively designed book will attract middle-graders for classroom research and for personal interest. Hazel Rochman
