READ TO TIGER

by S.J. Fore

illustrated by R.W. Alley

 

****************************

 

 A quiet evening, a cozy couch,

and a favorite book--what more

could a little boy need for

a pleasant evening at home.

Until . . .

 

Chomp! Chomp!    

                 

                  Hiiii-YAAAA!

 

  Choo-Choo-Choo!   

  

                                               TOOOOOOT!

 

 

 
 

 

How can anyone enjoy a book

when there's a

tiger

behind the couch?

 

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 in peace can both

be happy . . .

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
. . . until they discover

the perfect solution . . .

 

 

 

 

 

From Kirkus Reviews ~

"There are plenty of sound effects ready-made for enthusiastic audience participation--CHOMP, Grrrrr, Hiii-YAAAAA, Choo-Choo-Choo--in storytime and repeated readings, while the "turn-the-tables" device will be sure to cause giggles... And the message? Catch a tiger by the tale!"
