About the Author:

Gerald Rose was born in Hong Kong. When the Second World War started, his father became a prisoner of war, and Gerald and his mother were interned in a civilian camp, which was where he saw his first live tiger.

Gerald studied at Lowestoft School of Art and the RA schools. Frustrated by the dearth of good illustrated books for children, his wife, Elizabeth, helped him to write and illustrate a number of books. Gerald won the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1960 for Old Winkle and the Seagulls and won the Premio Critici in 1979 in Erba, Italy for 'Ahhh!' Said Stork. Gerald now lives in Hove, East Sussex.

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 Eccelshare 'This is no ordinary picture book, but a terrific read aloud book with deft comic touches and intensely funny illustrations' The Bookseller, Marilyn Brocklehurst '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
