Catch this tiger

As he wanders from shore to field, a scaredy-cat tiger suddenly finds himself up a tree. "Get him! Net him! Tie him tight!" the local villagers say. But once they capture him, the villagers make a surprising decision about what to do with him - and soon the tiger is off and running again.

Young readers can follow this simple, spunky adventure through vivacious verse, glowing orange-and-black pictures, and typography that soars right along with the tiger and his pursuers.
