"A beautifully illustrated book about environmental stewardship that strikes a perfect tone for young readers."
―Chris Case, illustrator of Jacob's New Dress, writer and illustrator for Sophie and the Next-Door Monsters
"An exquisitely told and illustrated tale of a Himalayan land without rain, of frightened farmers, and of courageous girls who go into the forest seeking an answer from the tiger they believe has stopped the rain out of anger. As Anjali learns, 'We all live under the same sky.' The combination of gorgeous watercolors, a forest adventure, and the notion that children can act to make life better, creates a vibrant emotional message that welcomes multiple readings."
―Riki Moss, sculptor and author of An Obese White Gentleman in No Apparent Distress(Riki Moss)
"It's not that others haven't tried to deliver the message of our impact on the Earth we live on and the other beings we share it with―many have done so. Some beautifully. What sets this book apart is the magical blend of earthiness and innocence. Two young girls step, open and unafraid, into the forest, and ask for the information they need. Greater still, they are willing to accept the answer. I was taken along with them, opening as they did, and feeling the truth in a new way. This story is a gift for all ages." ―Tanya Sousa, authorof The Starling God(Tanya Sousa)
About the Author
Dish washer, bus driver, teacher, theoretician, and artist, Charles Norris-Brown was born in the small northern Pennsylvania town of Warren. He completed a PhD degree in Social Anthropology and Sociology at Lund University, Sweden, in 1984, based on fieldwork in the inner hills of Uttarakhand, India. By 1990, Charles had re-focused his work to look at small communities living in and dependent on forests. This took him from the rainforest of Borneo to poor communities in eastern Canada and the Appalachian region of the USA. Part of this new focus included the terai region of India. While visiting the Corbett National Park in India as part of a planned applied research project, and on the recommendation of some villagers there, he decided to combine his art, anthropology, and concern for the environment and to focus on writing and illustrating children’s books. He began by completing an on-line course with the Institute of Children’s Literature in 2005. In time, he would raise the funds to allow his return to the terai, this time to Nepal, and from visits to the western terai region of Nepal in 2011 and 2012, he developed what would become his first children’s book: Did Tiger Take the Rain?
