There’s a Tiger in the Garden

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books

Grandma claims there is a tiger in the garden, but Nora doesn't believe her. She also says there is a grumpy polar bear, some carnivorous plants and dragonflies the size of birds. Nora is so bored she decides to go and have a look. Grandma seems to have been telling the truth - and after a narrow escape from the plant, Nora comes face to face with the friendliest tiger imaginable.

A sweet and surreal story with lush painterly illustrations and a high quality production make this feel like a really special book. There's a bit of a tradition of friendly big cats in children's literature, so Nora's tiger is sure to delight little ones who dream of tigers coming to tea, and then staying to play in the garden!
