From the author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant comes another thrilling escapade set in fictional Sri Lanka.

Selvi is a free spirit who loves climbing in the beautiful mountains behind her home. There, she befriended Lokka, a leopard with a beautiful coat and huge golden eyes. Together, they roam the wilderness as they please.

But when hunters come with bows and arrows, Selvi knows she must stop them before they hurt Lokka. But what can she do against such powerful enemies, especially when the friends and family she turns to for help are not all they seem to be? To rescue her leopard friend, first Selvi must outwit the poachers and expose the mastermind behind it all.  

With breezy chapters and lush, atmospheric settings, this action-adventure is a superb pick for young readers who enjoy stories with peril, friendship, and close encounters with the natural wild.

The Boy Who Met a Whale

Review for The Girl Who Lost a Leopard

I completely fell in love with this author while reading The Boy Who Met a Whale. The covers are fabulous and the writing is smooth, interesting, and holds even my attention.

This is a fast-paced, middle-grade adventure. Set in the jungles of Serendib (Sri Lanka), the author makes the setting come alive. Lokka is a leopard and Selvi shares a special bond with Lokka, they look out for each other. Thank goodness because soon the poachers show up for Lokka. The adventure ensues….

Everything is perfect for the middle-grade audience (and I truly believe adults would enjoy this wonderful story as I did).
The message is well done, including; nature, friends and family, and animal kindness. Well done!
