Prowling Tiger Reader Reviews

Prowling Tiger

Rachel Andersen

This is truly an exquisite picture book

This is truly an exquisite picture book. This is the tale of how five animals, the tiger, wolf, mongoose and peacock lose what is important to them, respectively, their stripes, teeth, nose and beautiful tail feathers. At the end of the book, they all regain what they have lost and learn something from what has happened i.e. the peacock learns to not be so vain. The illustrations are bright and colourful and would appeal to a young child. The story is told in rhyming verse, with a certain sly humour. The tiger wonders on meeting the tailless peacock: “What would this foolish fowl look like, /Served up with chutney and chips?” Great book which I would definitely recommend.

An absolutely beautifully illustrated book with a sweet story, reminiscent of the Just So stories.

An absolutely beautifully illustrated book with a sweet story, reminiscent of the Just So stories. So much to look at and explore in the pictures! The story of all the animals was funny, although my 3-year-old was petrified of the creature made from the lost parts. He was very relieved for a happy ending. I'd recommend as a book for parents and young children to read together, though be wary if the child is sensitive. My 7-year-old could read alone and was quite interested. He wasn't perturbed by the creature and loved the concept of all of the lost parts joining together. We enjoyed this book and the gorgeous detailed artwork definitely set it apart from other picture books.

I really liked the simple poem style that is used to write this story.

This was a nice little book that is simple yet has a hidden story that teaches children about valuable lessons that I think everyone should learn about.

I really liked the simple poem style that is used to write this story.

I read the book to my nephew and he really enjoyed it, however, there were some words that he didn't understand, so when we re-read it again I had to swap out some of the words for simpler ones. He also really liked the illustrations. His favourite was the Tiger.

This is a great book that is great that I recommend for families with young children, but I would recommend for children aged 5+, if you do read it to younger children you may need to simplify the story.

I must also mention that Irina Shumova has done a fabulous job with the illustrations. They are so bright and colourful. Exactly how illustrations in children's book should be.
