Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Tiger tumbles and romps with his two sisters in the Indian forest. Soon he is big enough to venture out alone. He explores the surrounding country for days at a time, but always returns to his family. One day, he realizes that he must find his own territory. In his search of a new one, he crosses an older tiger's path, running away when the scary beast threatens to attack. Tiger does not stop until he reaches a new part of the forest where just like in his old home, there is a stream nearby with fluttering butterflies. He marks his territory and curls up for a nap, content to have found an ideal home. Although the narrative is a bit didactic, the vivid paintings add some emotional appeal to the story. The cubs are adorable and the hill and the stream and the path that runs through the grass, all painted in lovely shades of green and burnt orange, charmingly evoke the forest locale. An author's note provides information about the tiger's physical characteristics, behaviors, and status as an endangered species.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA

My two year old loved this book when we checked it out from the Library. It is more of a non-fiction book than a story, but it was simply told and just the right amount of information for a young child. I loved the illustrations. I was just coming here to add it to our wish-list and was sad to see that it had such a negative review. I hope to get this for my daughter some time in the future.

The illustrations were quite nice but there wasn't an interesting story to go with them. Disappointing.
