In a breathtakingly beautiful book Martin Jenkins focuses our children's attention and imaginations on the wonder of animals in our world who may become extinct because of our human practices. What can be done to save the little Partula snail? How can we do for many other animals what we have successfully done for the American bison? The book opens with a drawing of the Dodo... a bird who has become extinct. Will the other animals in on these pages including the tiger disappear from our planet? Using drawings of the animals that bring them up close to us, the book gives some straight talk on the issues before us. The choices are ours.
