In his latest wildlife book for children, Steve Bloom takes us on an expedition to photograph awe-inspiring big-cat predators--lions, leopards, cheetahs, and tigers--in their natural environments. We follow Bloom as he travels across continents observing the lives of big cats: their family structures, hunting techniques, and how they survive in tough conditions.

Presented as a visual journal with a clear and engaging day-by-day format, the book features firsthand commentary on life in the wild along with detailed photographs. It concludes with a section on how Bloom photographs wild animals, accompanied by helpful tips so that children can photograph their own pets at home.
