I Recommend This Book

Yes

Written in first person, van Riel takes us into the world of Graham Cooke, a game warden who is tasked with rehabilitating two young leopards that were used in a movie. Animal lovers will delight in the antics of these kitties while pondering the ethical dilemmas that the situation naturally brings up. While I loved each cat's personality endearing, what I found fascinating was the aspect of "Empty nest syndrome" that plagued Cooke as the leopards' release date drew nearer.
