Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K-Young imaginations will run wild with this story within a story of a young boy who escapes from a tiger over and over again in various outrageous land- and seascapes. Tankard's bold black lines, created with ink and digital media, frame the cartoonlike characters and allow the tiger's stripes to stand out strikingly when viewed from a storytime circle. Children will enjoy trying to spot the tiger's tail, which is often camouflaged within the background scenery, while the protagonist regularly shouts, "A TIGER!" displayed in large-type font. Teachers can use this book to lead their listening audiences in re-creating the boy's actions as he sometimes creeps and crawls, yet at other times he boldly races to the surprising conclusion. This tale will be a boon to creative minds everywhere and a participatory storytime winner.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on December 29, 2012
Format: Hardcover
There is an art to reading a picture book but I've not encountered many schools that actually teach that skill. Librarians will learn it in their graduate courses, of course, but what about parents and booksellers? Are they doomed to stumble through their readings without getting some of the insider tips and tricks? Yup, pretty much. The only thing you can really do is just recommend to them picture books that make reading aloud one-on-one or to large groups a painless experience. Books that have an inherent interior rhythm and logic that kids will naturally adhere to. So each and every year I sit and wait for those great picture book readalouds of the year. For 2012 I've seen a couple that lend themselves to groups. "Up, Tall and High" by Ethan Long is ideal for preschoolers. "Creepy Carrots!" by Aaron Reynolds is perfect for the 1st and 2nd graders. But the all-around best readaloud of the year, bar none as far as I can tell, has got to be "It's a Tiger!" A boon to librarians and booksellers looking for new storytime fare as well as parents and grandparents, David LaRochelle's latest is a hoot, a holler, and could even be called a hootenanny if you're so inclined to call it that.

So you're walking through the forest, minding your own business, checking out monkeys when you realize that the orange and black tail over there isn't a vine at all. It's a TIGER!! Like a shot you (which is to say, the boy in the book) take off lickety split. Still, it doesn't matter where you go. Whatever you do, that darned tiger seems to follow.

When you open to the first page of It's a Tiger and the narrator asks "Are you ready for a story?" you just know this is going to be good. This book is made for group sharing as our young hero leads us through the jungle where we encounter snakes, bats, boats, and tigers. But does that tiger really want to eat us? That's the question that delivers some dramatic and funny moments that are sure to charm the socks off of any story time crowd. There is plenty of opportunity for the story reader to really ham it up with this one, and the ending delivers big.

This book is delightfully illustrated by Jeremy Tankard, and if you haven't discovered his work yet, you are in for a treat. It's a Tiger delivers his trademark bold colors and thick lined creations that are sure to engage even the most inattentive story listener. His characters offer up a level of humor and expressiveness that always makes me smile! They are a perfect pairing for a story that is energetic, fun filled and sure to please. Don't be afraid to cut loose with this one, and you will be guaranteed to have a story time audience roaring right along with you.

This is my children's (4 &5) and my husband and I's favorite bedtime story! The phrase "it's a tiger" is repeated throughout the story and the kids caught onto that quick and LOVE saying out loud with us. This book is not only fun for them but it is really fun to read as it easily builds suspense for little ones. SO MUCH FUN!

My son loves this book, I get some serious laughs out of him with nearly every "its a tiger!" page. Its all about the WAY you portray the story, but having a good foundation story helps!

First book my kiddo learned to "read" (memorized) back to me.

Illustrations are great - very bright and animated.

Very cute story about a boy and a tiger. My son really enjoyed the book over and over again. The illustrations are colorful and bright and there is lots to see on each page. Highly recommend. Also if you Google search the book you can find a fun activity that goes along with it. It has instructions on how to make your own tiger would of a paper bag and has print outs that you can color in. Lots of fun for a rainy afternoon!

Adorable story!

I read it with special needs elementary children and they were excited about it, and able to join. In during the repetitive parts.

The story will also be good for more typical children for critical thinking, predicting and making connections.

Originally, I picked this up from the library, but after one reading, I found my 3-yr old grandson 'reading' it....or at least what he remembered. Broke his heart when we had to return it.

So it's for you, Cal! Enjoy! Terrific graphics, and just the perfect amount of 'suspense' in the text.
