Tiger Dreams Pack of 6 by Gerald Rose


Tiger Dreams Pack of 6 by Gerald Rose

Suitable for children in Year 1 (age 5), Tiger Dreams is from the genre strand Narrative Recounts - a strand which motivates children to explore their personal responses and make links to their own experiences. Each story in this set of nine marks a significant event from someone's childhood. While some of the stories are set in modern Britain, others take place in the 1930s or 1940s in locations as diverse as Hong Kong and Trinidad. Gerald Rose was born in Hong Kong in 1935. The events in this story took place during the Second World War when Gerald and his sister and mother were interned at Stanley Camp, where they lived under difficult conditions. One day a tiger swam across the sea from mainland China. Gerald reflects on the excitement of the tiger's visit. This pack of 6 is for guided group reading.

About the Author

Gerald Rose was born in Hong Kong. When the Second World War started, his father became a prisoner of war, and Gerald and his mother were interned in a civilian camp, which was where he saw his first live tiger. Gerald studied at Lowestoft School of Art and the RA schools. Frustrated by the dearth of good illustrated books for children, his wife, Elizabeth, helped him to write and illustrate a number of books. Gerald won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1960 for Old Winkle and the Seagulls and won the Premio Critici in 1979 in Erba, Italy for 'Ahhh!' Said Stork. Gerald now lives in Hove, East Sussex.
