The grace and power of big cats--lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, pumas, and snow leopards--are captured in full-color photographs and a text that explores how they hunt, care for their young, and rest in their varied natural habitats. 'The combination of action shots and the author's practiced, informal style will win the attention of young readers, with whom Simon charges the future of big cats.' --C.

"Blue whales, right whales, humpback whales, killer whales, and more-- all strikingly photographed and lovingly described. Captivating."--" The Kirkus Reviews "Whales in their natural habitat are lavishly illustrated in this introduction to their physical characteristics and biology. The full-color photographs are lush, the text is succint, and the oversized format sets off the large scale of these magnificent creatures. A flowing text perfectly accented by the photographs. A beautiful and factual addition for all collections." --" School Library Journal
