Moving smooth as a river, her stripy coat bright as fire, mother tiger runs then vanishes into the tall grass. With plate-sized paws and a pink nose the size of your fist, she hunts and swims; cares for her cubs and teaches them all her tiger tricks. Children can discover some true tiger magic.

Nick Dowson, now an English and Drama teacher, has had many fascinating jobs - as one of the dynamite crew for a seismic survey company, a bracken cutter, an ad sales manager and a graphic designer, to name but a few. He is passionate about natural history and very concerned about the future of the tiger. This is his first book for children. Nick lives with his partner in Suffolk. Jane Chapman does all her painting in her kitchen, looking out on the garden. She has a pet tortoise named Muggsy, who at the age of seventy is a family heirloom. She is also the illustrator of the non-fiction bestseller, The Emperor's Egg, Winner of the 2000 TES Junior Information Book Award.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 3. The zoology is as exciting as the story in this action-packed picture book about a mother tiger who nurtures her two young cubs in the forest and prepares them to take off on their own. Chapman's bright, clear, double-page acrylic pictures show the camouflage drama ("Twigs with whiskers? / A tree with a tail? / Or is it a tigress, hiding?"). Then there are the tender close-ups of one mother tiger, her nurturing beautifully captured as, one by one, she carries her cubs with her teeth to a safe den. On each spread, the simple poetic words are in bold type, and small notes in italics add fascinating facts ("Tigers don't have a great sense of smell, but their eyesight is six times better than ours"). Drama increases as she teaches the cubs to hunt, and then must let them go. Brother and sister separate, and the young tigress will one day follow in her mother's path. The combination of fierce predator and gentle parent makes for thrilling science. Hazel Rochman
