Overview

A young tiger sets out to explore and hunt, determined to catch things with stripes. A young leopard sets out to explore and hunt, determined to catch things with spots. And when the two youngsters meet, their adventures more than double! In this delightful children's book, originally published in 1961, Dahlov Ipcar uses the playful cats to depict the exuberance and innocence of youth. And when danger looms, perhaps they are not as old or as brave as they think they are. Ipcar's incomparable signature artwork has never looked bolder or brighter.

Meet the Author

In a career spanning more than three-quarters of a century, Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar has written and illustrated more than thirty children's and young adult books, starting with The Little Fisherman (written by Margaret Wise Brown) in 1945 and including The Cat at Night, One Horse Farm, Hardscrabble Harvest, The Calico Jungle, and My Wonderful Christmas Tree. Her unique and distinctively modern style helped change the role of artwork in children's literature. She was born in 1917 in Vermont and raised in New York City. Her parents bought a farm on Georgetown Island in 1923, where Ipcar first summered and later moved with her husband Adolph in 1937. She still lives on the farm and continues to paint almost every day. In 2010, she released her first new book in more than twenty years, Dahlov Ipcar's Farmyard Alphabet, which she followed with Wild Animal Alphabet, another original board book, in 2011.
