Winner of Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2017, Illustrated Books category | February 2017 Debut of the Month Grandma’s back garden turns into a jungle full of adventure in this striking picture book, Nora is bored, so her grandma suggests she play in the garden, there might, she says, be a tiger there. Nora is scornful, but as she gets further from the house and deeper into the greenery of the garden, her attitude changes. She sees dragonflies as big as birds and a bush that wants to eat her giraffe Jeff just as Grandma said, and then she meets the tiger. Nora’s jungle is as wild and exotic as her imagination can make it, teeming with plants and birds, and her tiger looks at home there as Rousseau’s in its storm. ~ Andrea Reece
Florentyna Martin, Waterstones children’s buyer, said: “Lizzy Stewart’s There’s a Tiger in the Garden is bold, bright and beautiful. Lizzy’s immediately assured artistic style conveys a classic tone, allowing her charmingly told story of imagination to leap off the page. This is a timeless picture book which will be much loved by children and adults alike, and is a promising start to what will be an inspiring career.”
When Grandma says she' s seen a tiger in the garden, Nora doesn' t believe her. She' s too old to play Grandma' s silly games! Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens. So even when Nora sees butterflies with wings as big as her arm, and plants that try and eat her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there' s absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden ...Could there?
