About this title

Synopsis:

All is quiet on the African grasslands as a lioness and her pride stalk across the plain. They are searching for food. They will not find any, though, because the local wildlife has been run out of the area. How will the pride survive? And will they ever find a safe place to live again? This startling account of a lioness' journey shows firsthand the problems one cat must endure to survive.

The Animal Story series uses a documentary approach to graphically demonstrate survival in the wild.

· Dazzling, on-the-scene photographs capture each animal's story.

· Fact files offer in-depth information about each animal's habitat.

· A glossary and map reveal additional information about each animal.

· An index is included.

Each book in this new series from Waterbird Books will take a look at a day, year, or season in the life of a wild animal. Told from the perspective of an onlooker, the books capture the feel of a wildlife documentary. The reader is first introduced to a wild animal and its environment, and then follows the animal through its everyday life. The good, bad, funny, and sad are revealed as the reader tracks each animal and learns factual and unforgettable information about them. Stunning, full-color photographs highlight each story. A glossary and index are included. Supplements school curriculum in science.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 - Each of these books tells the story of a particular animal: an African lioness that journeys far to find food for her cubs, a polar bear that wanders into a town and must be airlifted out, a young gorilla whose family is threatened by poachers, and a baby orangutan that is taken from his mother to become a pet. The events unfold movie-style, showing snapshots from the creatures' lives rather than giving a day-by-day account of their existence. The narratives don't shy away from covering the harsher realities of the animal world. For example, Big Cat includes a scene in which a new pride leader kills his predecessor's cubs. These incidents are presented in a matter-of-fact style, but not in gory detail. All of the titles contain some discussion of human contact with the animals and include both positive (conservation efforts) and negative aspects (e.g., encroachment into animal habitats). Some information about species is woven into the texts, and more can be found in the appended "Fact File" sections. Colorful, full-page photos add visual appeal and lend an extra dimension to each title. While these offerings might supplement report material, they will find a more appreciative audience among readers looking for good animal tales. - Arwen Marshall, Minneapolis Public Library
