Nora is bored. She's been playing over at Grandma's house and now she's found that there really is nothing to do. Grandma encourages to explore the garden and seek out, among other things a tiger that has been living in there. Although Nora says she's too old for this kind of play, she begrudgingly goes outside and soon discovers a world she had not seen before.

This lovely picturebook will encourage readers to look carefully and question how much Nora knows is going on around her. Stewart's illustrations encourage the younger reader to spot the hidden clues and pathways in the book whereas, for the older reader perhaps, there is a chance for an extended conversation over what has been imagined and what has not. A lovely debut.
