“why don’t you play in the garden” says Nora’s grandma. “I thought I saw a tiger there earlier”…
Nora thinks Grandma’s house is boring, even Jeff the giraffe is bored. When Grandma tells Nora she’s seen a tiger in the garden Nora doesn' t believe her. She's far too old to play Grandma' s silly games!
Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens.
So even when Nora sees butterflies with wings as big as her arm, and plants that try and eat her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there' s absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden ...
A colourful picture book with all the hallmarks of a classic, There’s a Tiger in the Garden is a feast for the eyes, all about the power of imagination.
