The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
A welcome return of a deliciously witty classic. How an aging tiger, tired of hunting for his prey, manages to improve his life by disguising himself as a tiger skin rug in a house of plenty is a wonderfully entertaining story. Young readers will love being trusted by the tiger to share his scam; they know that the maharajah and his family are being tricked and the joke is, he can’t see it!
The Tiger-Skin Rug by Gerald Rose
It's amazing how easy it is for the tiger to pass himself off as a rug- he enjoys a life of luxury with the rajah's family, snacking on midnight feasts and playing with his children. He goes entirely undetected, until one night, when he risks expulsion from his comfortable abode as burglars break into the palace and he has to decide whether to stay in disguise as a rug - or save the rajah from a horrible beating. However, tigers who live in houses can have happy endings, as seen in this utterly brilliant picture book.
'Gerald Rose at his brilliant best. Welcome Back, Tiger! '
'This is a flawless example of how pictures tell one story and words tell it differently'
'This is no ordinary picture book, but a terrific read aloud book with deft comic touches and intensely funny illustrations'
'An absolute joy ... This is a perfect picture book to reissue; a whole host of new readers will fall in love with the charismatic tiger and delight in the happy ending'
The Bookseller, Vanessa Lewis
