Description
One of our favorite animal artists, Jackie Morris has illustrated such lovely books as The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, I Am a Cat, and Ted Hughes's How the Whale Became. Her evocative watercolors, though realistically detailed, are most notable for how they capture the spirit or essence of the animal. Here she illuminates a lyrical text by frequent collaborator Caroline Pitcher, in a pocketable edition of their 2004 picture book for readers 4 to 8. Everything in the forest is new and exciting for little Tiger—he can hear grass growing long after rain, snakes slithering, Monkey whooping to his tribe. But when Tiger tells this to his mother, she says, "When you don't hear them, then, my son, be ready. The Lord of the Forest is here!" Still puzzling over this enigmatic prophesy, he grows into a magnificent tiger, finds a mate, and raises his own cubs, before his mother's meaning finally becomes clear.

"It would be no exaggeration to hold up this book as an outstanding example of the art of the picture book in which the combined qualities of text, illustration, typography and book design are brought together in an almost perfect combination. Morris' watercolors alone should earn it a place in any school library."—School Librarian (United Kingdom)
