watercolors by Kratter cover the pages from edge to edge, and give us a
view of the action from a number of unique perspectives. Children will

"Finding and killing
enough meat to satisfy her three six-month-old cubs and herself is the
task that takes up most of the time, energy and skill of a mother tiger
living in the
in southern Nepal. We accompany her for her hunting and other activities
for two days and one night, until she finally manages to kill a sambar
stag. A brief but informative text and lovely, realistic watercolors are
especially effective in showing us the diverse flora and fauna of this
habitat: kingfishers, bamboo thickets, langur monkeys, phoenix palms and
one-horned rhinos. A map of and note about Chitwan National Park are
included at the end of the book."
