Remi asked Snow Flower if she had heard it. She had heard it. It could have been a big snake, or a hyena, or even a lion. The two decided to walk a little faster. Author Fleurie Leclercq tells the story of an adventurous young girl in her work of children’s fiction titled Snow Flower and The Panther.
Snow Flower lives in the forest in Central Africa with her loving grandmother. Snow Flower and her friend, Remi walk to the river to fill their water jugs one lovely day when they find a baby panther caught in a trap. The two friends work together to save the panther, and Snow Flower discovers an amazing secret in the process.
