I Am a Tiger (Hardcover)
This is a story about a mouse with BIG ideas. Mouse believes he is a tiger, and he convinces Fox, Raccoon, Snake, and Bird he's one, too! After all, Mouse can climb a tree like a tiger and hunt for his lunch, too. And not all tigers are big and have stripes. But when a real tiger shows up, can Mouse keep up his act?
With hilarious text by Karl Newson and bright and vivid illustrations from Ross Collins, this uproariously funny, read-aloud picture book encourages children to use their imaginations and be who they want to be!
Doesn't everyone want to be a tiger?
About the Author
Ross Collins was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Growing up, he was particularly fond of drawing and precariously swinging backward on chairs. He has illustrated over 100 books and has written several too, including This Zoo Is Not for You and What Does an Anteater Eat? Several of his books have been nominated for awards in the UK, including There's a Bear on My Chair, which was awarded the inaugural Amnesty International Honor. His book, The Elephantom, was adapted for the stage in London. He lives with a strange woman, a small boy, and a silly dog in Scotland.
"Mouse's overpowering self-confidence drives the humor behind this readaloud, and Collins' art, in thin crayon-like lines with watercolor, depicts with hilarity the wide-eyed astonishment of the other animals as Mouse convices them he really is a tiger." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The sentences are short and simple, making an amusing read-aloud for young children or early elementary students . . . A humorous animal tale that offers an unexpected perspective." -- School Library Journal
