School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- Emily has a tiger living inside her. Whenever she gets angry or frustrated, it comes out and does lots of damage. Her parents' helpless reaction to all of her tiger tantrums is always the same: "Oh, Emily, what are we going to do with you?" After she wrecks the house, spoils a birthday party, and sends a plate full of food sailing through the air, Emily's granny pops in for a visit and shares her secret: she has a tiger inside her, too. It seems that Granny's tiger knows how to control herself, and likes to be happy instead of mad. Emily likes the sound of that, and gets right to work adjusting her tiger's attitude. She restrains herself on the playground, eats all her carrots, and voluntarily gets ready for bed. Later that night, Granny Tiger and Emily Tiger slip out and magically bound all over the neighborhood, in perfect harmony with everything. This effort at whimsy-with-a-message is something of a lame, confusing idea built around a weak metaphor. Most of Latimer's images are capably rendered in acrylics and incorporate collage, but the collage elements are arbitrary and inconsistent, adding little to the presentation. There are better stories available about children who act out: Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry (Scholastic, 1999) springs to mind.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC
