Hi! Welcome to my website!
I'm so glad you stopped by. . . .
I hope you enjoy your visit!
Tiger can't sleep.
And when Tiger can't sleep, no one can sleep.
The well-behaved hero of this story goes right to bed without any fuss. But the show-off tiger in his closet wants to tap-dance and play the drums. An increasingly annoyed little boy argues, scolds, and pleads. "Oops, Tiger is sorry! Tiger will be very, very quiet," Tiger promises— but it’s hard to be good when you’re alone in the dark. The little boy wonders if he’ll ever get to sleep—until he discovers the perfect way to deal with a noisy tiger . . .
IT'S TIGER PARTY TIME!
How can a kid enjoy his book when there's a TIGER behind the couch . . .
. . . an energetic, imaginative tiger behind the couch, just begging for attention.
It starts to seem like there's no way a playful tiger who wants company and a little boy who just wants to read his book can both be happy—until they discover the perfect solution . . .
