Come Here, Tiger!by Alex Moran, Lisa Campbell Ernst
Tiger the cat is missing. Follow Lisa Campbell Ernst's playful illustrations, and you'll discover that Tiger might be closer than you think. . . .
Children's LiteratureTiger is a cat, and his mistress can't seem to find him. She checks under the bed covers, in a box, in a bathtub and under a hat. The clues in the pictures show parts of the other pets (dog, rabbit, frog and turtle) that might resemble Tiger, but sharp eyes will find the real clues as to where Tiger really is and not be fooled by the "red herrings." This little girl has quite a menagerie--so pet-adverse parents beware. This is a Green Light Reader, Level 1. 2000, Harcourt, $10.95 and $3.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library JournalPreS-Gr 1-Two appealing offerings for beginning readers. One hot day, Big Pig and Little Pig both decide to build their own pools. Although Big Pig likes to do things on a small scale (using a shovel to dig) and Little Pig likes to accomplish tasks on a grander scale (excavating with a bulldozer), they are still great friends. McPhail's signature illustrations fill each page as he once again successfully manages to transfer human emotions to his lovable cartoon pigs. Well-chosen vocabulary and repetition of words make this story a suitable choice for those just learning to read. In Tiger, a little girl comes across a variety of animals before finding her lost cat. Ernst illustrates the story with appealing cartoons in pastel colors. Her uncomplicated artwork invites children to make the connection between the words and the pictures, giving them plenty to look at while providing effective visual reinforcement for the appropriately simple text.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
