Editorial Reviews:

From Midwest Book Review

“Illustrated with striking color photography throughout, Seeking the Snow Leopard is a nonfiction picturebook by World Wildlife Federation mountain guide and naturalist Jon Miceler. The true story of how a team of expert scientists and conservationists temporarily tranquilized, studied, and released a snow leopard – outfitting it with a radio collar that would enable its movements to be tracked for almost two years – all to learn more about these majestic and beautiful animals. Seeking the Snow Leopard is fascinating to page through, and highly recommended especially for school or public library picturebook collections.” —Midwest Book Review, Reviewer’s Choice, The Pets/Wildlife Shelf


From School Library Journal

Gr 2–5—Miceler explores the Himalayas in search of the elusive snow leopard. The book begins with the last day of the expedition, when a trap is triggered by an animal, and then flashes back to the start of the journey and relays the events that led up to the opening. … Although snow leopards are mentioned in the title, the focus is less on these big cats and more on how biologists study elusive animals in harsh ecosystems. The photographs vary in quality, but their occasional imperfections lend an authenticity to the firsthand account. VERDICT An additional purchase for students interested in biology or adventure stories.—Ellen Norton, Naperville Public Library, IL
