Description
Imagine coming face to face with an animal that looks almost like a panda, but has a mane like a lion, protruding ears like Mickey Mouse, and shining gold fur with a moon-shaped crescent. Sy Montgomery—also the author of The Good Good Pig—has sought (and been chased by) gorillas in Zaire, vampire bats in Costa Rica, snakes in Manitoba, and pink dolphins in the Amazon. In this illustrated book for readers 10 and up, adapted from her longer work for adults Search for the Golden Moon Bear: Science and Adventure in Pursuit of a New Species, she seeks a beautiful and elusive Southeast Asian bear who may be a genetically distinct species from other known bears. Montgomery delves deep into the jungles of the Elephant Mountains, visits the bustling streets of Cambodian cities, explores remote villages, and attends a Club Med for bears in Thailand—all while carrying marshmallows for treats and tweezers for plucking hair samples.

"Montgomery's conversational text takes readers to open-air markets and fruit farms in Cambodia, a wildlife breeding center and a zoo in Thailand, and hillside tribal villages in Laos (with a hefty interlude of tropical rain forest investigation).... The exciting narrative is complemented by an array of full-color photos and 'data pages' on such topics as DNA decoding and mammals recently discovered in Southeast Asia. Appendixes include global bear statistics and addresses and Web sites for further information. This attractive and informative offering is an intelligent reportage of science as it happens—from the conception of an idea to authoritative analysis in a specialized lab."—School Library Journal (starred review)
