Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–A wide-eyed boy nestles into his couch for a cozy read, only to be repeatedly interrupted by a full-size cartoon tiger that insists on chewing gum, growling like a bear, doing karate, blowing a whistle, then lifting the couch to find the whistle. With each offense, the animal insists, “Tiger is very sorry!” and promises to cease. Finally, the critter has a peek at the book, learns from the boy that it is about a circus tiger, and snuggles up to listen to the story. As in Tiger Can't Sleep (Viking, 2006), Fore and Alley play with sound effects and comic expressions, which will please a read-aloud audience. The spare ink drawings expand on Tiger's amusing antics, adding in a red train or midnight forest as backdrop. The Typeka text is somewhat difficult to read when holding the book aloft for crowd viewing and the tale goes on a little long for those under age four, but it will find fans in children who enjoy energetic tales.Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

This book is just as good , if not better, as Tiger Can't Sleep! My 2 1/2 year old grandson asks me to read these book on a daily basis. They are a must have in your child's home library.

My two boys (now six and four) love the Tiger books! I have been have been reading "Tiger Can't Sleep" since my eldest was only two. Four years later, we still love it. My boys love silly stories, and Tiger's antics are right up their alley. I like him too... I've read hundreds, if not thousands, of children's picture books over since my children were born, and Tiger is still one of my favorite characters. Every time I read one of his stories, I can't help but smile. Tiger is such an attention craving, mischief making, but cuddly friend to the little boy (who, like a parent, has to work to TRY to keep Tiger in line). My boys love the noises Tiger makes in "Tiger Can't Sleep," (i.e. potato chip crunching and kerthump, thump, thumping), but we just bought this book and the karate chopping and train choo-chooing are big hits too. And I'm glad that Tiger wants to listen to stories.

Hatched colored-pencil drawings illustrate this picture book about a little boy who just wants to be left alone so he can read. Unfortunately, there is a tiger behind the couch, who chomps and growls and makes train noises -- all loud enough to bother a little boy trying to read. After many lectures from an annoyed little boy, and many apologies from a lively and irrepressible tiger, they discover a solution.
A fun picture book that is great to read aloud. I wasn't a fan of the typewriter-style font, but the story was so fun that it totally won me over. Little ones will want to hear it again and again.

This book is so cute. I love that the little boy acts like the parent and the Tiger is the child. As I was reading this to my son, I saw him in the place of the Tiger and me as the child trying to read. My son loves to ask me to Read, Read, Read to him and this book is great to Read to him. We shake out fingers when the little boy is telling Tiger "Huh-Uh Tiger" and make the sounds to go along with Tigers actions. It's a great book to get them involved in reading. Highly recommened this book!

We received this book today and my kids loved it. The tiger is cute and reminds me of my own children with his innocent noise. I've already read the book multiple times so it gets five stars.
