How to be a Tiger

George Szirtes

"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!

A fantastic new collection for younger children from a prize-winning poet. These poems are perfect for curious young minds, ready for adventures.

How to be a Tiger picked for Best Book for May by Reading Zone

"How To Be a Tiger is the first collection for younger children by George Szirtes - and it's a treat….

For a superb but Very Serious adult poet, Szirtes' book strikes just the right tone for kids. It is packed with poems that ring and sing and fling off the page….Not only does this collection make you laugh, think and wince, but it will help young ones understand the different ways you can capture a moment forever with words."
