Editorial Reviews


"This is an interesting tale created around an actual mountain lion born in the mountains of California. His name is P22 which comes from the region where he finally settled. The author has created an intriguing story about this animal who did an amazing thing - he crossed two highways to get to the forest area where he wanted to make his hunting ground and new home. He included a few other animals in the story with whom P22 interacted - a couple opossums, llamas and his father. . . Children will enjoy reading about P22 and cheer him on as he strives to find a new home in spite of the dangers he must face." - Janice Spina, Children's author.

"The book does a great job of bringing P22 and his animal friends to life. It has something of a Disney vibe to it that will suit a younger audience. It's a charming book and the characters all have their own fun personalities. Of course, it isn't just a load of twee fiction. The book includes plenty of fact and insight. It doesn't shy away from the realities of the animal world and you get a good idea of what P22 might have had to face. . .It's a very enjoyable and fun read" - Motherbooker.

"This is a great way to introduce younger kids to the challenges mountain lions are facing in California. You will find this book worth picking up as it is a well balanced blend of reality and fantasy which makes it educational, inspirational and fun to read!" - Purr and Roar

5.0 out of 5 stars The Amazing Journey of a Big Cat
Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2021
A recommended read to help kids appreciate the world of big cats is “The Cat That Changed America” by Tony Lee Moral. In this fictionalized account of the real and famous California cougar, P22, Moral chronicles the cougar’s adventures starting with his birth, and that of his brother, and time with Mom in the Santa Monica Mountains, meeting neighbors, including the raccoon, woodpecker, mockingbird, skunk (Mom advises P22 to “stay away”) and opossum, from whom he learns the hard truth. One day he’s going to be forced out of his mountain home!

There’s more foreshadowing! Mom and her cubs one day meet Prime. There’s a secret the reader comes to learn about Prime, “the dominant mountain lion in the woods,” according to Mom who also tells the cubs that “there isn’t enough room in the mountains for all of us, especially if you’re a male mountain lion.”

Tragedy befalls the family and eventually P22 is forced to leave his home. He is confronted with many challenges, dangers and, still, Prime, as well as cars, coyotes and rodenticides! But ultimately, after a harrowing journey of 60 miles, P22 finds a new home in Griffith Park in Los Angeles.

Moral does a great job of interspersing lots of facts about cats and the problems facing wildlife into the narrative, so “The Cat That Changed America” is both a good read and an educational one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cat that Changed America
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2021

A wonderful book documenting the journey of “P22”, a brave mountain lion, who was forced out of his natural environment. You’ll be rooting for him the entire time as he encounters multiple scary obstacles. This is the second book I read by Tony Lee — what an exceptional writer, who always makes you feel like you are right there in the moment.
