The Lovereading4Kids comment

Grandma’s back garden turns into a jungle full of adventure in this striking picture book, Nora is bored, so her grandma suggests she play in the garden, there might, she says, be a tiger there. Nora is scornful, but as she gets further from the house and deeper into the greenery of the garden, her attitude changes. She sees dragonflies as big as birds and a bush that wants to eat her giraffe Jeff just as Grandma said, and then she meets the tiger. Nora’s jungle is as wild and exotic as her imagination can make it, teeming with plants and birds, and her tiger looks at home there as Rousseau’s in its storm. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

There's a Tiger in the Garden by Lizzy Stewart

When Grandma says she's seen a tiger in the garden, Nora doesn't believe her. She's too old to play Grandma's silly games! Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens. So even when Nora sees butterflies with wings as big as her arm, and plants that try and eat her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there's absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden ...Could there?
