Praise

Magnificent artwork and a careful balance of good and bad news are the strengths of this examination of endangered species.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From big, beautiful tigers to the lowly partula snail, the stunning illustrations in this album of endangered species accompany a familiar message: Human actions change the world in ways that affect many other species.
—Kirkus Review (starred review)

The artist draws readers in through the eyes of the animals, making it nearly impossible to deny them the attention and respect that their plight deserves….The collection of success stories works as inspiration and provides a clear indication that yes, we can save the tiger, but it requires action, hard work, conscious decisions, and books like this one in the hands of children
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Seldom has the gloomy subject of species extinction appeared in such a handsome form…Rather than bludgeoning children with dire eco facts, biologist Martin Jenkins takes a conversational approach…Vicky White’s beautiful pencil illustrations lend the message an especially haunting quality
—Wall Street Journal

A stunningly beautiful book as well as an eloquent appeal and consciousness raiser.
—The Horn Book (starred review)
