Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the beginning of time, high above the hidden valley, Snow Leopard has sung the stars to life, the sun to rise and the moon to wax and wane. She has woven words of protection to keep the hidden valley safe from the world and as she sings, a child lies dreaming the song down in the valley beneath. But time is passing, and Snow Leopard needs to find a singer who will follow her. But while she is searching, soldiers come looking for gold and slaves . . . Jackie Morris's poetic text weaves the spirit of nature into a universal myth for our time, drawing threads of transformation into a children's story glistening with wonder. Set against the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas, her superlative illustrations of the nearly-extinct Snow Leopard offer a message of hope at a time when many of the world's wildest places are being worn away by human beings.

About the Author

Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs, and cats. Since leaving college, the Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat, Pixie, sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about. Her work includes The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, Tell me a Dragon, and How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes.
