Synopsis

There’s a quiet, gentle tiger In the woods below the hill, And he dances on his tiptoes, When the world is dreaming, still. Malachy Doyle’s poetic text invites us to join a mysterious tiger, who only appears when the moon is full, on his joyous dances through the changing seasons. Luminous paintings by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher capture the movement and energy of the language, and lead us to a magical woodland, suffused with moonlight, where a child and a tiger can play to their hearts’ content.

This kind of alchemy is all too rare, where the spaces between the words hold layers of meaning, and the images expand, expound and explode the text in lovely ways.
