The Tiger is a gorgeous depiction of one tiger’s day in the jungle. It has no text as the story is told through the colorful and detailed illustrations by Federico Bertolucci. While the book focuses on the tiger that is trying to secure a meal, the story also gives us glimpses of other wildlife going about their lives. It is sad, funny, and serious. I found myself pondering and pausing as the story progressed and at certain pictures. You can certainly fly through this in less than half an hour, but I don’t recommend doing that — I took time to admire the artwork and feel for the circumstances at hand.
I know this is a very short review, but this is a short book and I don’t want to lard on word after word without being concise and to the point. So, basically: The Tiger is an excellent journey alongside a fierce, majestic cat, a wonderful and beautiful depiction that I recommend reading. ♦
