One Happy Tiger


Catherine Rayner honed her picture book illustration skills by observing the animals at Edinburgh Zoo. Her sketches developed more than good penmanship, it’s evident. From these, evolved the stories that made Catherine Rayner an instant picture book making success.

One Happy Tiger is ideal for our youngest readers with counting, vocabulary building, and an opportunity to join a little tiger on his forest journey through these captivating pages.

One Happy Tiger

Catherine Rayner

(Little Tiger Press) – board book

We’re invited to join One Happy Tiger on his journey through the forest. What’s more, we can count and wonder at all we see! After all, this tiger’s world is one of such joy and inspiration. Butterflies and light abound in this adventure in the natural world. It seems that the tiger’s view is ours. Then again, as it counts, so do we! For example, we jump through raindrops, and even splash through ‘splishy fish’! There is such interaction and appreciation and a need to be and feel!

Catherine Rayner‘s beautiful illustrations and understanding of animals is clear in this wonderful book for new readers. What’s more, we’re familiar with this writer-illustrator’s world. We know Augustus of old, and then through his appearance in Solomon Crocodile, for example. (We love the way that this writer’s characters integrate through her stories.) Then again, everything is fresh in this tiger’s world. It means we see things freshly too. Thereafter, the simple text means that newer readers feel encouraged to join in, count down, anticipate and recall. All in all, One Happy Tiger is a superb early book for young readers. Bookwagon loves and recommends this title.
