This is the nonfiction account of how a chimp helped take care of two baby tiger cubs. The photographs of the animals are beautiful. There are also some interesting comparisons between the cubs and other tigers. The chimp seems to like having his photo taken and the tiger cubs are just a photo op for him, but he does pose as a proud parent as well. At the end there is a description of where the animals live and what it's mission is for preserving endangered animals. The front cover will catch th ...more

This is an amazing book that tells the true story of how two orphan baby tigers were raised and cared on the T.I.G.E.R.S. animal preserve and shared numerous hours playing, cuddling, and swimming with them. But perhaps importantly, the cubs were raised and cared for by two surrogate Mums: A human animal worker named China and her special helper, Anjana, a Chimpanzee. Yes, I kid you not!

Although many readers will want to know much more about how Mitra and Shiva ended up needing so much care, they will still be enthralled with this sweet story of friendship between two different species.

The affections among the tigers, the chimp, and China, the human animal worker upon whom they all relied is evident throughout the book. Budding conservationists will adore this book with its simple text and r ...more

The cutest animal book ever! I'm saying that about all of the books I see today. The photographs tell it all - seeing the species interact is really touching. The story starts out with just the cubs, which is not what I expected, but eventually gets to the relationship. Written simply, so possible to read-aloud. The prose is not exceptional, but the story is. It would be fun sharing at storytime.

Children will want to know what happened to the cubs' mother; this is a key detail that shouldn't just be glossed over. At the very least it should be addressed in author's note.
But otherwise a cute, sweet book about a chimp who helps take care of two tiger cubs.

From the creators of Suryia Swims, another heartwarming story about interspecies friendship with the obligatory irresistibly adorable photographs.
