Review:

'Gerald Rose at his brilliant best. "Welcome Back, Tiger!"' Michael Foreman 'This is a flawless example of how pictures tell one story and words tell it differently' Julia Eccleshare 'The resplendent framed illustrations of a tiger masquerading as a rug who makes is home in the Rajah's palace are second to none' The Telegraph 'An absolute joy ... This is a perfect picture book to reissue; a whole host of new readers will fall in love with the charismatic tiger and delight in the happy ending' The Bookseller, Vanessa Lewis

Book Description:

A classic picture book reissued 32 years after first publication

A thin, lonely tiger sees his chance for a happy life with a rajah and his family and so he swaps places with a rug. All goes quite well . . . for a while!
