The Lovereading4Kids comment

Beautiful illustrations lead readers right into the world of the tiger in this poetically written factual introduction. Tiger is born fluffy and soft with his eyes tight shut. But tiger grows up and develops. Gradually, tiger develops the skills he needs to set out into the world and find his role as Lord of the Forest.

Synopsis

Lord of the Forest by Caroline Pitcher

Everything in the forest is new and exciting for little Tiger - grass growing long after rain, snakes slithering, Monkey whooping to his tribe. 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!" Tiger is puzzled, and can’t help wondering: who can the Lord of the Forest be?

The new miniature edition of this story, is a breathtakingly beautiful book – to enjoy and to treasure. With jacket and foil, it’s a perfect gift for animal lovers of all ages.

Reviews

About the Author

Caroline Pitcher

Caroline Pitcher was born and brought up in East Yorkshire. She spent much of her time as a child out in the countryside, and playing by the river. As a child her interest in reading was encouraged by her mother, and by some excellent teachers, and she loved reading books about ‘nature’. As well as reading she enjoyed writing, and writing has always been an essential part of her life. She wrote her first novel just before becoming a mother, and now enjoys writing for all age groups. Her ideas for stories often come from places she has visited.

Caroline Pitcher studied English and European Literature at university, then worked in a number of places including a fish factory and an art gallery before becoming a primary school teacher in East London. She now lives in Derbyshire.
In 1987 Caroline won the Kathleen Fidler Award for Diamond. The Snow Whale was shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award in 1997. Caroline was also awarded the Arts Council of England Writer’s Award for work in progress for Silkscreen which was first published in July 2000. 11 O’Clock Chocolate Cake was published in 2002 and met with great acclaim.

Caroline is now writing a brand new quartet for Egmont, which opens with the first novel, Cloud Cat. The quartet is eagerly anticipated by booksellers, children and parents alike and promises, once again, to combine Caroline’s atmospheric writing with a great story! Sky Shifter is the second installment and publishes in July 2005.
