Glorious pictures by Manya Stojic and a gentle but factual text combine to tell the story of how a tiger grows from an adorable cub into a magnificent adult out on his own. There is nothing anthromorphic going on here--this is non-fiction, but it is told so well that it is being classed as a picture book.
A lot of picture books try to present a story and facts about the natural world all at the same time, but this book does it better than most. I particularly like the way Blackford includes a factual preface about tigers (as opposed to a note at the end) and Stojic's lovely illustrations.
I like this story because it reads like nonfiction. Everything in the story could actually happen in real like. The tiger does not talk or anything. It is a practical book to give kids an idea of what tigers are really like in a way that is not boring for them.
