Illustrator Patrick Benson has won many awards for his work, including the Mother Goose Award, the Christopher Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award.

Patrick Benson's illustrations portray the Himalayan mountain communities near where the snow leopard lives, as well as the cat herself, who stalks through the snow on extra-large paws that serve as snowshoes to keep her from sinking. The leopard hunts ibex, raises cubs, and beds down in a cave during a fierce Himalayan storm in this enchanting story. * The B&N Kids Blog *
It is a fascinating, adventurous and moving story. Illustrated with the spectacular work of Patrick Benson, this world and seldom seen animal is imprinted in the imagination and heart of all. Eloquently written, there is such beauty related in both the words and pictures that you will be haunted by the extraordinary wonder of the 'Grey Ghost'. * Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories *
Complete with an index and a conservation note, this is a wonderful addition to the series and the debut of an exciting new voice in non-fiction writing for children. * LoveReading4Schools *
The formula for Walker Books' nature series is a blend of evocative writing, supplementary facts and sumptuous illustrations, and it's a winner. * BBC Wildlife *
