Tiger, by Nick Butterworth
Meet Tiger. He isn't, strictly speaking a real tiger, but when he plays, he can be anything he wants to be! Tiger loves to pretend to be a real tiger, with a scary, tigery ROAR! and great, big tigery claws instead of soft paws. He slinks through the jungle just like a real tiger, creeping up on other animals and leaping on muscled haunches. The drawings show the juxtaposition between baby tiger and adult tiger in a playful way, and the story is harmless fun. This is a great book for little ones who like to pretend, especially for children who seem in a hurry to grow up. It's also excellent for older babies and toddlers, as the pace is good, there aren't too many pages, and the pictures are engaging. A fun romp through a little tiger's big imagination.
