Little Lost Tiger is a beautifully illustrated description of a night and the following morning in the life of Siberian tiger Striped One and her young son, Amba. Author Jonathan London nicely describes the frozen habitat, the creatures (tigers and others) who live there, and the excitement of a sudden forest fire. "A Note from the Author" at the end tells us a little about Siberian tigers; it informs us Udege and Nanai tribes both call tigers "Amba," so that's where the baby tiger in Little Los ...more

"A mother Siberian Tiger and her cub step silently into the forest, floating like mist in the moonlight. The mother nudges her cub beneath a fallen tree as she goes in search of food. Suddenly there's a roar louder than any tiger's. Fire!"

The greatest achievement of this book is its ability to stand out amidst other picture books for preschool through kindergarten. Where others rhyme to capture the audience, London uses beautiful vocabulary to d

Little Lost Tiger by Jonathan London, illustrated by Ilya Spirin - 2012- Loved this picture book, quite suspenseful when a little tiger is left in a safe place only to have to run away when there’s a forest fire.

The story follows a mother Siberian tiger and her kitten though a forest as the mom hunts for food. A forest fire crops up and the pair gets separated. After the fire ends, mother looks for her kitten again. The illustrations are softly and detailed with plenty of browns and blues. Lines detail the fur and whiskers as a contrast to the forest background. Written as a tribute to Siberian tigers which are nearing extinction.
One night a mama tiger sets out to hunt for her and her cub, but then encounters a forest fire and loses her cub's whereabouts. A beautifully illustrated book; short informational text at the conclusion of the story.
Beautifully illustrated story of a Siberian Tiger and her young cub trying to survive in the harsh snowing winter weather. I really like the informative information about Siberian Tigers in the afterward.

Gorgeously illustrated, simple picture book about a Siberian tiger separated from his mom during a wildfire. Reads aloud well, good for groups, but might be too scary for some kids.
The illustrations are sumptuously stunning, but the text seems to really fall behind. this would have worked beautifully as a wordless book.
Good information and some nice action. Might be a good book to share with a class before talking about endangered species.
Amba, a Siberian tiger cub, is separated from his mother by a forest fire in the Siberian wilderness.
