Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fitzpatrick's (Lizzy and Skunk) luminous watercolors and just one to two sentences per page convey a thoughtful take on imagination, friendship and backyard adventure. The opening spread introduces the narrator standing against the brick wall that separates his house from one that's boarded up next door. "Hey, Mew!" he says to his cat, who is standing on the wall. "Are you a tiger? I'm a tiger too." A full-bleed illustration shows the boy and Mew lurking amidst ferns and tall grasses. Mew turns into a tiger; the boy sports stripes and fur (but retains his human characteristics). Framed vignettes on the next spread show the transformed pet running away. "Oh, don't go!" says the boy. "I don't want to be a tiger all alone." The pattern repeats as the boy imagines himself and his dog, Ruff, as wolves; he and Mr. Fish become a sailor and a dolphin in the backyard pond. A dramatic center spread of the forlorn boy standing against the imposing red brick signals the turning point: a series of four panels shows the boy peering over the wall, then opening its blue gate, to meet the new boy next door. The boy invites his new neighbor to play. "I'll be a tiger," he replies. "Then we'll be tigers two." Closing illustrations show the boys, both fully transformed, roaring and stomping through the grass. Ages 4-6.

From School Library Journal

reSchool-K-This charming story about the power of imagination and friendship opens with a young boy standing somewhat forlornly in his front yard near an obviously vacant house next door. His only companion is a cat sitting on the wall dividing the two properties. The youngster tries to engage the feline in a game of pretending that they are tigers, but the uncooperative animal runs away. The child doesn't fare any better with a dog and a fish that are respectively asked to be a wolf and a sailor. The disappointed lad rests against the lonely garden wall until activity next door rouses him from his melancholy. On the other side is a boy, a boy just like him, who willingly joins in the game. Lovely bright watercolors amplify this simple yet universal tale that is an excellent choice for storytimes.

By Michael Emberley on May 3, 2007
Format: Hardcover
A lovely book by a talented Irish author illustrator who is also the creator of the innovative, "I AM I". Not your typical cliche choked "I think I'm a cat" book. Watercolors sensitively portray the transformations as a boy imagines himself a tiger, a wolf, or a sailor, in order to find a playmate. A satisfying read. Highly recommended!
