Synopsis

Tiger on a Tree by Anushka Ravishankar

Tiger Tiger on a tree Is it true? Can it be? Did he fly? Did he flee? Did he fall and hurt his knee? Did he cry? Did he plead? If you want to know: read The tale of a wild tiger cub who wanders into an Indian village, and the reactions he encounters from the stunned village inhabitants. The art, verse and typography run and bounce off the page, drawing both the curious child and the quizzical adult into the lively world of the book. Now translated into eight languages and having sold 40,000 copies worldwide, this is the first softcover edition of a quintessential Tara title.

Reviews

Vibrant brush strokes - the enchanting, rhyming blurb sets the tone for the singsong quality of the text which has delightful sound effects. The bold print pounces at you from the page - a visual treat for children.

Something uniquely personal - told in whimsical verse, and animated through simple pictures and flowing typography - the kind of story that might go round in circles forever.

A great lesson in respect and liberty.
