From roly-poly cuddly cubs to sleek and powerful night-stalking predators, it's no wonder why the cheetah is an all-time kid favourite. Boasting the title of 'fastest land animal', these spotted big cats can go from 0 to 60 mps in less than 3 seconds - which makes them the perfect topic for this fun and informative level 2 reader. Bursting with fascinating facts and rich, colourful photography, readers will learn everything from the way they sleep to how they hunt and raise their young. They'll also learn 'weird but true' facts like how the ancient Egyptians kept cheetahs as pets and how kids today can own cheetah-breeds as pet cats.
