Tiger Days and the Secret Cat

Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books

Review

Tiger Days is a shy nine-year-old girl - and when her grandmother, May Days, invites her to stay, she is full of trepidation.

Tiger is alarmed when an orphaned baby warthog comes to live in the kitchen, but May gently encourages her to train the animal and a bond soon forms between them. Tiger befriends Tom, the boy next door, and together they investigate the mysterious noises coming from the house and make an unexpected new friend.

With each passing day, Tiger tries new things and grows a little more confident. May often slips her some invisible Tiger Bravery to keep in her pocket, which helps enormously.

This is a gentle tale about friendship, love and building self-confidence. The first in a series, it features black and white line drawings and short chapters, making it ideal for new confident readers to enjoy.
