High up on a rocky ledge, a mountain lion rests in the sun. But she is not alone. By her side, two four-week-old kittens purr and play. They climb her hilly hips and tumble down her tail. They wrestle near her great big jaws and jump over her giant lion legs. They dig down under her chest and crawl out between her paws. But when curiosity gets the better of one little kitten, creeping and peeking over the ledge edge, the mountain lion mother pulls him back to safety! In this stunning companion to Rabbits and Raindrops, the preeminent naturalist in children's books today once again offers readers a study in nature's contrasts--juxtaposing creatures big and small, old and young--and as majestic as any Lion King.
