Opinion

From the critics


From Library Staff

This is one of those great books that really rely on the turn of a page. You're just wandering through the forest, minding your own business when all of a sudden . . . IT'S A TIGER! RUN! As the tiger's appearances grow more and more ridiculous, the audience grows more and more amused.

A pleasant ramble through the jungle turns into a mad scramble driven by repeated encounters . . . with . . . a TIGER!

LOVE the illustrations!! My 3 year old son really enjoys this book - has it pretty much memorized and likes to "read" it back to me.

Long story short, we haven’t seen a boy/tiger relationship this complex since the days of “Calvin and Hobbes”. Tigers are such cute and cuddly carnivores that honestly it’s very difficult to be perfectly afraid of something as soft and fluffy as a tiger. That sort of makes them ideal picture book threats. LaRochelle has written innovative picture books for years now (“The End”, etc.). Pairing him with Tankard just guarantees a hit. Put this one on your Must Have list and stat.

A wonderful adventure told in a way that includes your child in the story. Very colourful pictures only add to the excitement!

So you’re walking through the forest, minding your own business, checking out monkeys when you realize that the orange and black vine 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. Dark caves, ships at sea, desert islands, the ferocious tiger is everywhere! At the end you realize that the tiger doesn’t really want to eat you. So to put it to sleep you decide to tell it a story. A story about a boy walking through the forest until it sees a green scaly vine. Wait a minute . . . that’s not a vine . . . .

Book trailer for It's a Tiger

Kids and parents alike will rejoice in this lively read-aloud picture book, as the main character runs into (and away from) a tiger over and over again as the plot gets sillier and sillier. Perfect for acting out while reading, It's a Tiger! offers just the right amount of excitement without being too scary, and a sweet ending with a bit of a twist.
