This book is beautiful to look at, without even opening it - the front cover comes to life when it sits on your desk. The art involved in this book is of an immense scale, a work that must have taken many hours and that lives up to it. The story (obviously) isn't very complicated, but is very relevant to today's issues with the tiger (an animal on the brink of extinction). Although this is only mentioned as a small paragraph at the back of the book, it reminds us all of the majestic triumph that is the tiger's form and the place tiger's have earned and should keep in the food chain of the jungle. Perfect for kids, perfect for artisitic adults and all others for that matter - in fact this is one of the biggest reasons I had for purchasing the book. I love tigers and art, I use the book now as a reference in drawing the tiger. My young sister also has use of it, the message has great import - that one should have pride in themselves, just as the tiger comes to have. To anyone who visits this page, use your effective demand to get this book - it will not dissapoint!
