The Lovereading4Kids commentLuminous paintings convey a magical night time atmosphere full of dreams, hopes and possibilities and a sense of â€˜foreverâ€™, even when things are changing. A little girl dances joyously through the seasons with a â€˜quiet and gentle tigerâ€™. They meet when the moon is full and, bathed in its ethereal light, they skip through the bluebells, high-kick the autumn leaves and, as winter comes, they waltz in the dazzling snow. The illustrations create a dreamy background against which the bond between the little girl, her great-grandmother who, as a child herself, had done it all before, and the tiger is powerfully forged. A quiet book, but one to savour. (5+)
The Dancing Tiger by Malachy Doyle
This magical, tender tale about a girl, a tiger and a great-grandmother is a joyous dance through the changing seasons. From the moment the book is opened, we are invited into woodland suffused with moonlight and, as the tiger's story is revealed in all its beautiful simplicity, we are left pondering the power of the imagination, the importance of self-expression and the special nature of a relationship across the generations.
