Julia Eccleshare's 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.

About The Author
A school project of Rebecca’s, created at the tender age of six has in it the line ’When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist’. Rebecca remembers endlessly boring her long-suffering family with ill-conceived stories she had written about rabbits wearing flat caps and aliens flying around in suitcases. It was through a rather scrappy route that she got there, but that childhood dream is now finally coming true with her first three written and illustrated picture books due out; Cub's First Winter, Milo's Pet Egg and Just Because.
Rebecca has always been arty and doodled her way through life and, after a degree in Philosophy and a brief stint in a torturously dull office job, she returned to her childhood career plans and started putting together a portfolio of children’s book illustrations. Since 2002, Rebecca has illustrated many children’s books using both digital and tradition mediums and is delighted that she’s now branched out into writing them as well. She lives in Sudbury, Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and two children, Clementine, who has severe special needs, and Toby, who is a bit of a monkey. When not making up stories about animals and children having adventures, she spends her time singing in pubs (not just randomly – with her husband who plays the guitar!), spending time with her beautiful children, blogging, and walking through the Suffolk countryside.
Rebecca's book Zoo Girl has been highly commended in the Junior Magazine Design Awards in the Picture Book of the Year category, as well as shortlisted in the Most Promising New Talent category.
