Our March 2022 Ages 11+ Book of the Month
For kids aged 11 and over, my March Book of the Month is The Girl Who Lost a Leopard. Selvi is a wild child who loves exploring and climbing in the beautiful mountains behind her home. It is there that she befriends a beautiful leopard with huge golden eyes who she names Lokka. But when poachers come hunting for Lokka, Selvi is determined to fight. Can she and her friends come up with a plan to protect the endangered leopard against such powerful enemies?
This is the third title from Nizrana Farook, the author of one of 2020’s biggest selling books – and her debut – The Girl Who Stole an Elephant. The Girl Who Lost a Leopard is another brilliant escapade, with inside illustrations to engage readers of all abilities. This thrilling adventure is set in tropical Sri Lanka and introduces and educates the reader on different cultures. It is also so important for children to see a diverse range of characters in books, especially when it is characters they can see themselves reflected in, and this is a great example of such a book. We’ve chosen this book for all these reasons and more, plus it’s perfect for escaping reality and losing yourself in a completely different country and adventure!
