Chitraka – A Challenged Cheetah Tale
2015 Family Choice Award Winner
2014 Mom’s Choice Gold Metal Award: Children’s Picture Book – Animal Kingdom
“Cheetahs, considered the fastest on land, are now in a plight they don’t understand.
A story of hunger and lost habitat, a mother who hunts but avoids combat.”
Chitraka, a young cheetah mother faces habitat depletion, loss of prey and poaching as she tries to provide for her young cubs. Will Chitraka survive her many challenges?
Themes of predator-prey relationships, human-wildlife interaction and habitat loss make this book a realistic introduction to the plight of the endangered cheetah.
“This is one book in a wonderful series pertaining to certain animals’ plights in our world. The way they are portrayed through thoughtful poetry and wonderful illustrations is fun for children and at the same time educational and thought provoking. I believe these are an excellent way to help educate and open peoples minds to very necessary conservation. Education is the key!”
J. Whyte – former Professional Safari Guide, Zimbabwe, Africa.
