“Leopardpox!” shouts Mama when her little girl becomes a frisky leopard cub. Now what? Mama and Sadie’s three brothers take Sadie to the doctor, who says, “I’m not a doctor for leopards.” Then they try the vet, who says, “If this is a leopard cub, it’s a healthy leopard, but if this is a little girl, then she is very ill.” The zoo would be happy to keep her, but no one likes the idea of leaving her behind. No, decides Mama, they’ll take care of her at home, where rest and kindness work wonders. Explosively funny, slightly retro-looking illustrations accompany the laugh-aloud text, which takes a sly dig at the medical establishment while affirming the power of comfort from Mama. And—who knew?—leopardpox may just be contagious!
