Tiger, Tiger

Overview

No one will play with Pocu, so he slouches off to amuse himself-and finds a wonderful feather. Swish. He makes the flowers bloom. Swish. He creates a great, murmuring shadow with two eyes burning bright. Pocu wants a playmate, but when the shadow follows him into the jungle and starts taking over the game, he fears he's created a monster. And it's up to him to find a way to handle his dangerous creation.

Overview

No one will play with Pocu, so he slouches off to amuse himself-and finds a wonderful feather. Swish. He makes the flowers bloom. Swish. He creates a great, murmuring shadow with two eyes burning bright. Pocu wants a playmate, but when the shadow follows him into the jungle and starts taking over the game, he fears he's created a monster. And it's up to him to find a way to handle his dangerous creation.

Dee Lillegard's beautifully written text shows how a powerful imagination can take on a life of its own, and Susan Guevara's rich, stunning paintings bring Pocu's magical world to life.

A bored young boy uses a magic feather to form a tiger, and then must use the feather to save his village when the tiger gets hungry.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-When everyone wants to nap in the heat of the day, Pocu has no one to play with until a magic feather ignites his fertile imagination. Piece by piece, he creates a glorious tiger. Through the power of his imagination and/or the feather's magic, he renders an animal that insists on being taken to the village for dinner. Pocu is a clever young boy and he convinces the beast to take a nap first; while he sleeps, the child carefully dismantles him, much to the relief of the monkeys and parrots who have been actively voicing their concern. A wiser Pocu arrives home just in time for a welcome supper. The succinct text more than suffices as Guevara's gouache with chalk-pastel illustrations on mixed-media paper conjure up all the magic needed for a tantalizing flight of fancy. Luscious cool greens wrap around the bright yellow-orange of the tiger and the brilliant rainbow colors of the magic feather, while monkeys, parrots, and peacocks keep careful watch from the background. This is a perfect choice for reading aloud, with repeated swishes from the feather and warnings from the monkeys and parrots giving eager listeners an opportunity to join in on the story. Totally satisfying.-Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Stunning, jewel-toned illustrations in gouache and chalk pastel on mixed-media paper bring a young boy's imagination to life in this riveting tale. Left on his own on a hot day when the other villagers would rather be napping, Pocu finds a peacock feather in the forest and waves it, creating an imaginary playmate. The first wave makes the air cool; the second makes the flowers bloom; and the third creates "a great murmuring shadow" that speaks, asking for eyes, paws, body, tail, and stripes. The somnolent swishing of the feather in the dark forest coupled with the shadow's seemingly innocent requests lull readers into the game; but soon the shadow reveals its true identity: a fierce, hungry tiger. Pocu is frightened until he remembers to use his feather. Each wave this time removes claws, paws, and tail, until Pocu finds himself alone again; now it is suppertime and he can go back to the village and join his family. Soft-focus illustrations in intense jades, blues, and browns evoke the deep forest setting; the peacock feather in a shimmery rainbow of colors stands out brightly. The tiger, first nothing but a dark swish, grows into a huge orange creature; the spread showing its ferocious face with its bared fangs is terrifying. Those who have scared themselves thinking about what might be lurking in the basement, in the attic, or out in the woods, will recognize the fun of make-believe fright as well as the welcome realization that the same force that created them can tame the beasts of the imagination.
