Simi and Siri, playful, mischievous snow leopard cubs, are growing up fast. While out looking for food, they are separated by an avalanche. Simi is trapped by the snow, and Siri can't rest until she finds her brother again. What happens is a heartwarming story of perseverance that is a testament to the link between these two cubs. Illustrated by the award-winning Ivan Gantschev, there is also a short afterword with more information on these endangered animals.
Ivan Gantschev was born in Bulgaria in 1925. After surviving World War II, he worked as an artist. In 1966, he emigrated to Germany, where he lives today. His prize-winning works have been shown in galleries all over the world. Several of his books have been published by North-South Books. He says he illustrates picture books because he wants to show children that it's possible to solve problems peacefully--and besides, it's a lot of fun!
