A written review by Cathie Sue
It’s a Tiger! by David LaRochelle Illustrated by Jeremy Tankard
“Are you ready for a story?” queries the boy in the opening pages of It’s a Tiger. Sounds a little like a bedtime story but you may get unexpected results if you save this one for a quiet night. Instead read this lively and energetic picture book aloud to early elementary kids who will easily spot a piece of the tiger on each double page spread. As the story takes us from jungle to cave and from meadow to ocean we see the boy is never quite in peril but still cuts it very close. Not trying to spoil the end but a tummy rub goes a long way to soothe frightened children and tigers!
