Publisher's Summary

There is no animal in the world that can run faster than a cheetah. Yet, no matter how quickly they run from trouble, cheetahs may not roam the African plains forever. They have lost much of their habitat to farmland, and some are killed by farmers who worry about their livestock. But cheetahs have important friends - like Dr. Laurie Marker and the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. The CCF saves injured and orphaned cheetahs that would die if they were left in the wild. They even have a tame cheetah named Chewbaaka!

With the CCF helping to preserve these amazing cats, the 12,000 or so left in the world have a fighting chance to survive. Veteran publisher, author, and editor Rosanna Hansen - who spent time working at the CCF - shares the fascinating story of cheetah preservation in this book young listeners will find irresistible.

    Story
    "A fun, sweet and informative book"

    This is an interesting and fun telling of a short conservation tale. The author takes the reader through her journey learning about the vital work done at a cheetah conservation organization in Namibia.

    Basic cheetah facts, survival and behavior is explained, including current struggles the cheetah faces in it's race against extinction. The author takes us through her stay at the Cheetah Conservation Fund and what she saw, learned, and participated in there.

    It's a very easy, short book, but a fun and engrossing adventure, with some education mixed in for good measure.

    Very enjoyable!
