*It's a Tiger!* by David LaRochelle, illustrated by Jeremy Tankard
It's a Tiger!
by David LaRochelle, illustrated by Jeremy Tankard
Ages 3-5 36 pages Chronicle August 2012 Hardcover    

Some childrenís books are reserved for bedtime, but David LaRochelleís The It's a Tiger! is far too fun and boisterous for such sleepy reading. Readers need to be on their toes, because lurking behind every page is... a tiger!

Jeremy Tankardís colorful, offbeat illustrations propel the story through exciting scenes of tiger danger. More exciting than frightful, young children will love an over-the-top reading of The It's a Tiger!.

A boy begins the story in the jungle. Heís ready to take us on an adventure, but a tiger interrupts the story at every pass. Itís not until we learn the tigerís true motivations do we see that the real story is not what we expected, but a funny twist that should make the kids howl.

Just a fun book all around.
