How To Be A Tiger
By George Szirtes
Illustrated by Tim Archbold
A wonderfully inventive poetry collection for younger readers from a multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed poet
'The tiger growls, its eyes ablaze,
but we too have our tiger ways,
we too can pad through the dark wood
of the cosmic neighbourhood.'
Leap with hares, call out to the sun, run with the wind, pull silly faces with monkeys, watch out for the bear in the bathroom and meet a burping princess!
