Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of nature's most magical sights emerges from camouflage in this evocative, informative story about a mother tiger in the wild.

Moving smooth as a river, her stripy coat bright as fire, a mother tiger runs, then vanishes into the tall grass. With plate-sized paws and a pink nose the size of your fist, she hunts and swims, cares for her cubs, and teaches them all her tiger tricks. In a lyrical narrative interspersed with many intriguing facts, Nick Dowson reveals the hidden ways of a wild tigress and her cubs, while Jane Chapman brings the mysterious creatures to rippling, roaring life.
