Everything in the forest is new and exciting for little Tiger, but every time Tiger tells his mother what he hears, she says, "When you don't hear them, then, my son, be ready. The Lord of the Forest is here!" Peacock, Rhinoceros, and Elephant all boastfully claim the title, but Tiger knows these screeching, bellowing, roaring beasts could never be the great one his mother has prepared him to meet. Who is the Lord of the Forest? Caroline Pitcher's lyrical storytelling, a strong underlying environmental theme, and Jackie Morris' vibrant tableaux of the forest and its inhabitants make this an irresistible read for children, alone or with friends and family.
