Children's LiteratureThis 8" by 8" book has an additional, and removable, small tiger-shaped book tucked into a hole in its cover. There is a title printed on the back strip but not on the front cover, however there is a large tiger on the face of the big book and a small tiger is pictured on the smaller book. Both books are written in the first person; Mama does the talking in the big book, and Tom describes what he and his twin sister are doing in the small book. Mama explains how she prepares her children for life in the jungle while Tom describes how the twins play. The last two pictures in the big book are cryptic, or at least a little obscure—and that's a good thing. On page five Mama is gazing at some deer and telling her cubs to be very still and watch. Page six reveals Mama and one cub lying on their backs sleeping with noticeably fat tummies. Explanations are up to the reader. The little book has fewer words, and it also finesses the killing and eating of the deer. 2005, Child's Play, Ages 2 to 5.
