Tiger Trail Hardcover – Oct. 1 2000
|New from||Used from|
From School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-In poetic text, Winters writes about short episodes in a big cat's life: in the den with her kits, hunting, in danger from a leopard, teaching her young to swim and hunt. The story begins and ends with the words, "I am the tigress. I walk alone," thus leaving out any information about mating. Regan's gorgeous oil-and-gouache illustrations cover the double-page spreads and complement the drama of the text. A good first introduction to this majestic animal that will have youngsters clamoring for more.-Sally Bates Goodroe, Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX

The pictures, supplied by the adept Laura Regan, are rendered in oil and goache and look as if they were real enough to pounce. The story itself is simple. Any child obsessed with these overlarge kitty cats will instantly take to the book's delightful rendering of all things striped. Of course, these are hunting animals, so there is death as well (though skillfully left to the reader's imagination). Admittedly, it's just a nice story. Nothing new or brilliant about it. It fills a niche that has been filled before and will be filled again. But those in this world that love tigers will be grateful for it. And in a way, that's all that matters.
