More About the Author

Nick Butterworth was born in north London in 1946 and grew up in a sweet shop. As a boy, he always loved drawing and had an insatiable appetite for stories, two passions which have continued into adulthood. After a conjurer made an appearance at one of his birthday parties he also developed a fascination with magic. (His own prowess as a conjurer was called into question by his daughter, just before her eighth birthday. "Dad, you're not going to do your magic at my party again this year, are you?" she said.)
On leaving school, he worked as a graphic designer and in 1970, he formed his own consultancy with three others, including long time friend and fellow author Mick Inkpen who, "joined the studio during his gap year and just, sort of, stayed."
In 1980, Nick decided to concentrate on illustration. His first book for children, B. B. Blacksheep And Company, was published the next year. His first writings for children appeared in the Sunday Express Magazine in the shape of a regular feature called Upney Junction.
With the advent of breakfast TV, he became a regular presenter on the TV-AM children's programme Rub-a-dub-tub, telling stories and illustrating them live.
Nick's books, have sold over twelve million copies around the world in more than twenty-five foreign languages. They have featured frequently on short lists and won several prestigious awards, including Nick's favourite, The Nestle Gold Award for The Whisperer.
Percy the Park Keeper, who accounts for some seven million of Nick's total sales, first appeared in 1989 in One Snowy Night, and has been the subject of a series of animated films for television. Nick is now a partner in a production company, Snapper, with the aim of producing high quality animation for children's television. Nick's Q Pootle 5, a little alien character, is in development.
Nick lives in Essex and is married to Annette who is also a writer. They have two grown up children Ben and Amanda and two grandchildren, Harry and Thomas. Nick feels very much at home with children of all ages. He enjoys visiting schools and book events whenever he can. He has also gained a reputation as an entertaining and inspirational speaker at more grown up conventions and gatherings of parents and teachers etc, and is a frequent speaker at major book festivals such as Edinburgh, Cheltenham and The Hay.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Hannah Chilton on 10 Oct. 2006
Format: Hardcover
A great story with plenty of scope for a fun read-aloud session with your little ones ... love all the captions about a kitten who would like to be a tiger, especially the one about 'not playing with wool'. As a veteran story teller I know many of you will agree that the more we enjoy reading a book to our children, the more they will enjoy listening, so great importance lies with whether we love the story or not and this one has been read hundreds of times and I'm still not bored with it. Another book for keeps.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mum of Two on 13 July 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for nights when the kids are really tired, but still want to hear a story before bed. We read it really slowly, word by word, and it has the same relaxing effect as a slightly longer book, while not taking much time to read. I personally love the idea of the story, a kitten pretending to be a tiger, and I think the way Nick Butterworth tells it is understated and very elegant. My favourite is the page about NOT playing with wool...

The pictures are excellent: bold, bright and clear like computer-generated images, yet retaining the detailed feel of hand-drawn art.

We love this book! We got it for our daughter's 1st birthday. It has taught our little girl (now 18 months old) all sorts of new words - stripey, tiger, & jump, to name a few, and also how to pretend (because the cat pretends to be a tiger) and also how to roar! She often pulls it out and asks us to read it, or sits and looks at it herself. It has great pictures that alternate between the cat, and then how he sees himself as a tiger! She always giggles at it. Am really glad I bought it and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

My wife got this book from the local library and my little boy (10 months) absolutely loved it. In fact, when it had to go back, he kept looking for it so we came on here and bought it along with the equally good follow-up "Tiger in the Snow".

The pictures are beautifully drawn and the story is simple and fun, with lots of scope for funny noises and actions as you are reading it to your child. Highly recommended.

Have loved this book since I got it for my son before he was one. It is simple, clear, funny and enchanting. The illustrations are lovingly drawn, both Tiger and the tiger being very cute. My son still loves it at nearly 3 and I love reading it to him and have not tired of it yet. Well worth a purchase, as is the follow up Tiger In The Snow.
