My Book Review for “When a Lion Screams”
“Lion Scream” is a creative collection of poetry, photos, information, links, and a short story. The poetry tells a story of the wildlife in South Africa. It is not always a pleasant narrative with the loss of their habitat or cruel hunters maiming for profit. I learned a lot about the animals and found all the poems fascinating on many different levels. Ms. Cheadle discusses the Sixth Mass Extinction and Climate Change effect on animal life through her visits to wildlife reserves and personal interaction. She shares extra reading through links to learn more, which I appreciated. This was a meaningful way to bring the plight of animals to people’s attention. The short story, at the end, tackled another important subject of our youth’s mental health and the medication used. I won’t pick out my favorites because the message is too important. A book not to be missed by those who love animals and the world we share with them.
Here is the tour schedule.
A link will be added to the list as each stop becomes available. There will be a post with the link and author information included here for each stop.
Three winners will be randomly picked from the tour comments for a $20, $10, or $5 Amazon Gift Card on May 16th!
Since it’s a short story collection, each stop will be different.
