Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Bertman
There once was a beautiful tiger who lived in the forests of India, who could hide in the tall grasses or dark shadows and not be seen by other animals because her orange coat of fur kept her camouflaged. This helped her to be an excellent hunter. But one day the tiger comes across a peacock and is so impressed by his rainbow colored feathers that she wishes her coat had a beautiful array of colors like his. When the tiger wakes up and sees her reflection in the river, she finds that her wish has come true. But the tiger also soon learns to be careful what she wishes for because things aren't quite as wonderful as she had imagined they might be for a tiger with a rainbow colored coat. This story is illustrated with beautiful watercolor paintings. A list of tiger facts is included at the end.
School Library Journal
Can a tiger change her stripes? Not without learning some lessons on survival. A full page of tiger facts follows the conclusion of this thoughtful fiction. Other endangered animals could become the subject of similar student stories. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
