"Young readers will love to see these animals"

Fresh Fiction Review

Who Will Roar If I Go?
Paige Jaeger

Reviewed by Clare O'Beara

This stunningly beautiful book for young readers would be a perfect present or teaching aid. WHO WILL ROAR IF I GO? is the question asked by the magnificent lion as he and other animals explain that they are in danger of going extinct.

The panda, zebra, rhino, snow leopard, are large and well known, but smaller creatures include the pangolin, red- crowned Amazon, giant salamander and blue Karner butterfly. Each animal species gets two pages of illustration and a short poem by Paige Jaeger describing its life and habits. Young readers will enjoy the sound of the poetry while admiring the fine detail of plants and animals. The vibrant colours are not garish or cartoony, in fact they catch the eye amid delicate strokes. The illustrator Carol Hill Quirk could inspire a new generation of artists.

I recommend this book for children up to ten, depending on the individual. Adults will probably give consideration to framing the artwork. WHO WILL ROAR IF I GO? should be an essential book for a junior classroom.

If you love children's books about zoos, lions, tigers, elephants, animals, or endangered animals,then you'll love this book. This is a great addition for readers who enjoyed: Giraffes Can't Dance, by Andreae; Kwame Alexander's Animal Ark; How To Be An Elephant; What If Sharks Disappeared; or The Photo Ark by National Geographic.

Children will meet many African animals like the lion, rhinoceros, and gorilla who all have something to tell you.

"The King of the Beasts - that's my claim to fame.
I've got a big crown of hair that's called a mane...."

Readers will also meet the snow leopard, elephant and tiger in Asia, quetzal in South America, panda and salamander in China, red-crowned amazon and blue karner butterflies, and the pangolin in Australia. Their message is simple but very important:

"We need you to care and let us live free.
Or there will be no more wild animals to see."

Who Will Roar If I Go? will introduce the basics of endangered species and poaching and opens up conversations of what we can all do to help. Will you roar before they go?

The text is research-based poetry with hidden facts and can be used in elementary classrooms as a springboard to research. Shannon McClintock Miller says, Who Will Roar If I Go? is "a book for every young Researcher...."
