Little Tiger Press have chosen an apt and engaging book to celebrate their 30th anniversary. The illustrations are bold and stylish, full of light and colour and jungle happenings, each double page spread bearing repeated scrutiny. The story line spans the generation gap, featuring an old tiger and a young cub. Cub grows bored whilst Tiger snoozes all day: ‘Don’t sleep all day! Get up! Wake up! I want us to play!!’ Tiger agrees to a slow walk through the jungle, where humming birds Dart! Dash! Rush!, Tiger wanting nothing but home and a long nap. Flit! Float! Flutter! Cub is fascinated by a butterfly, then Chit-chat! Yatter!, monkeys swinging to and fro. Cub catches their energy and sense of fun. Tiger just about remembers the monkeys’ antics. But as Cub discovers more and more excitement in the jungle, old Tiger gradually warms to the thrill of the fauna around them, eventually joining Cub in tree climbing and announcing it was fun. By the end of the book, the old and young are united in the excitement of their jungle frolic, and have a friendship we feel will endure. A good book to share within the family.
