Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Award-winning artist and animator Morse (Plastic Man; Southpaw) muses on childhood, fatherhood and imagination in this charming autobiography. Replacing himself with a paper tiger, his tiger character from Southpaw, he shows readers how he sees the adult world: luminous, full of possibility, but dangerous, too, in its capacity to squelch artistic impulses. The introduction dwells in the world of Morse's imagination and is a little vague and overwritten, but—ironically—as soon as the little orange tiger takes off for jury duty, Morse's talent shines. On a break from the selection process, our tiger wanders downtown Oakland, sketching those he sees: a couple having lunch outside, the employee of an animal shelter, even an unfriendly woman. There is no mundane, and no day is ordinary, Morse tells us, and, indeed, his artist's eye finds the meaning in whatever is around him. At the end of the day, the reunited tiger and son make their way home through a world that is still sometimes unfriendly—but just by being there they lighten it and remind readers to take chances on themselves. A must-read for Morse fans, but also for anyone with a child, and anyone who still questions the status quo. (Jan.)

Tiger! Tiger! Tiger! is a charming autobiography by Scott Morse. Here, he draws himself as a tiger, putting his thoughts beside his colourful sketches, telling us how he sees the world and himself.

Do adults still pretend to be someone else nowadays? I know kids sure do, pretending to be their favourite superheroes and idols. But an adult? It's interesting to see a story told from a little tiger's point of view.

The story starts with jury duty that was delayed. Using the free time, the little orange tiger takes a walk around the neighbourhood, sketching, visiting the park, animal shelter, scribbling notes on what people are doing. On a separate day, he tells us another story on his day out with his little kid (also a tiger), talking about fatherhood. It's simple but effective storytelling.

This is a very personal piece of work and I really like the traditional medium art, especially the watercolors. Recommended for Scott Morse fans.

As an artist myself, I found this book extremely interesting. Using the tiger as a metaphor for his own persona, Scott Morse very effectively depicts the internal conflicts we experience as we try to balance creativity with practicality, find adventure in the mundane, and set positive examples for those who look up to us. The mixture of styles, from bold paintings to simple sketches, is exceptionally beautiful. Overall, I loved this book.
