Doesn't everyone want to be a tiger? This little kitten certainly does in this amusing "Reality vs Fantasy" tale of a kitty with a tiny superiority complex. Lovely rich and sumptuous painted artwork is the order of the day here, with a kitten character (and tiger counterpart) that your children would just love to snuggle up to and cuddle. The mischievous central character lets his imagination run wild as he stalks through the back garden, pretending it's the deepest darkest jungle. Great eye-catching cover that compliments the illustrations inside perfectly.
Charlotte's best bit: Kitten vs Swan
Daddy's favourite bit: The tiny miaow of the kitten. Very cute.
