From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- Once found in Africa, India, and other parts of Asia, the highly endangered cheetah now lives only in limited areas of Africa or in captivity, as shown in this attractive photo essay. Arnold's text begins by introducing a tame female cheetah raised by humans at a wildlife park in Oregon and moves smoothly into a discussion of the history and physical characteristics of cheetahs and behavioral differences between animals in the wild and those in protected habitats. The discussion covers hunting activity, rearing of the young, characteristic marking, genetic weakness as the species declines, and other topics. Fine color photographs, handsomely assembled, accentuate the elegance of the species. Although the material tends to be cursory, leaving readers wishing for more information in many instances, this is an appealing introduction to an animal surprisingly underrepresented in children's books. --Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston
