An inside look at the life of leopard cubs from nature photographer Suzi Eszterhas

An inside look at the life of leopard cubs from nature photographer Suzi Eszterhas

World-renowned wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas loves leopards, but their elusive nature makes them hard to photograph. So when Suzi is invited to photograph a leopard and her cubs at a nature reserve in Botswana, she packs her bags and boards a plane to Southern Africa!

Through a series of diary entries, Suzi invites readers to follow two leopard cubs as they grow from tiny furballs to fierce predators. It’s a dangerous world for leopard cubs, so their mom is always close by—feeding her little ones, protecting them from threats, and teaching them how to survive in the wild. Suzi captures sweet maternal moments, dangerous encounters, and hilarious antics—such as when one of the leopard cubs sleeps in a pile of elephant poop!

Stunning full-color wildlife photography brings the leopard cubs to life, while fun facts throughout the book deepen the reader’s understanding of these amazing creatures. Suzi’s passionate storytelling and compelling voice will evoke respect for all wildlife and inspire readers to help protect it.

A portion of the royalties from sales of this book will be donated to Children in the Wilderness, a non-profit organization that promotes sustainable conservation through the education and leadership development of rural children who live close to African reserves.
