Jan Burchett and Sara Vogler were already friends when they discovered they both wanted to write children's books and that it was much more fun to do it together. They have since written over a hundred stories, ranging from ghost stories, football stories and dinosaur stories, to a story about an old lady who goes back to school at the age of 109!From Booklist:
Twins Ben and Zoe are dispatched to the Himalayas for the seventh in their series of Wild Rescue missions. This time, an avalanche has separated a rare snow leopard from two of her three cubs, and it’s up to the rescuers to find the animals, save them from being poisoned by locals whose goat herds are threatened, and lead them to safety. Presented in generously sized type interspersed with plenty of cartoon-style black-and white-illustrations, the outdoorsy adventure mixes straight-ahead action with basic facts about climbing and snow leopards. A little pedantic but appealing. Grades 2-4. --John Peters
