The Lovereading4Kids comment

Can the Last Tiger and his friend Luka save their ruined world and build a new one? Together, through their friendship, Luka and the Tiger show new ways of thinking that bring hope to a world that has destroyed nature. A touching story with a strong green message.

The Lovereading comment:

With striking illustrations crafted in ink line and collage, this thoughtful yet uplifting picture book leaves a lasting impact. It tells the story of a little boy and a tiger who lead the world to a sustainable future. Similar in style to Rebecca Elliott's highly acclaimed Zoo Girl (nominated for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal), this story warns of what the future might hold if we neglect our duty of care to our environment.

Synopsis

The Last Tiger by Rebecca Elliott

In a world that has been destroyed by human carelessness, a little boy discovers the last tiger. But where did he come from? Through their adventure together they rediscover a natural way of living and lead the world to a sustainable future.

About the Author

Rebecca Elliott

Always the eternal daydreamer and doodler Rebecca Elliott's school project from the age of six has in it the line “When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist”. After a brief trip into a more serious life involving gaining a degree in Philosophy followed by an insanely dull office job Rebecca returned to her childhood career plans.

Since 2002 she has written and illustrated dozens of children’s picture books including, Cub’s First Winter, Naked Trevor , The Last Tiger, Milo’s Pet Egg and Zoo Girl which was nominated for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal. She has also written about her own children, one of whom has severe special needs, in her books Just Because and Sometimes which have been met with accolades from former children’s laureates Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen, five star reviews and much media coverage from, amongst others, The Independent and Radio 2.

Rebecca also teaches adult courses on writing and illustrating children’s books, regularly visits schools and runs workshops for children at events including the Edinburgh Literary Festival.

She lives in Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and three children, Clementine, Toby and Benjamin and continues to spend her days doodling and daydreaming.
