Meet Clovis, the roaringest tiger in the whole world
Clovis is a very noisy little tiger. He knows he has the loudest roar in the whole jungle. And Clovis thinks that everyone else should know it too. He's good at roaring, but he's very good at hiding - and that's when the trouble begins. The other animals soon tire of him jumping out and
shocking them with his loud roar! - but what can they do to stop him?

A major new book from Thomas Taylor, the artist who created the first Harry Potter, for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.Review:
The jungle is usually a peaceful place but not when Clovis, a small tiger, is around. He loves to sneak up on the animals and startle them with the "roaringest" roar in the world. One day, while he is sipping at a stream, the animals turn the tables and join in a cacophonous clamor that jolts him right up a tree. A truce is declared and the jungle settles down in peace again-well, "most of the time." The lively rhythmic text, which takes full advantage of alliteration and repetition, makes this book a storyteller's delight. Children will relish joining in with the tiger's roar and the refrain, "Suddenly-there was Clovis!" as the page is turned from a scene of peaceful somnolence to one of chaos. Taylor's full-color, cartoon illustrations can be overly busy-they are most successful when the artist uses double-page spreads and particularly excellent in capturing the moment of flurried surprise that results from the roar. This title is appropriate both for group sharing and one-on-one reading. Clovis's enthusiasm for the surprise will strike a chord with youngsters, and the lesson about "doing unto others-" will resonate with both adults and children who share this tale.--School Library Journal, March 2003
Eager to prove that he is the loudest and fiercest animal in the jungle, Clovis, a very young, small tiger, approaches everyone he sees with a loud ROAR! No one is impressed, but in fact they become rather annoyed at the disturbance he's creating. The monkeys finally organize a just comeuppance with the offended parrots, wildebeests, and elephants, in a plot line reminiscent of Diane Massie's classic The Baby Beebee Bird, re-illustrated by Stephen Kellogg (2000). Taylor (The Sorcerer's Apprentice, 2002, etc.) has written a cumulative tale that's predictable and based on an overdone theme. His simple text reads aloud easily and offers opportunity for some participation. The color-pencil drawings in various shades of greens, browns, and blues depict the animals in a caricature fashion, emphasizing their vexed, angry reaction to Clovis and his roars. Clovis's playful, kitten-style look is completely non-threatening, and he's much too cute to take seriously. Unimpressive, just like Clovis.--Kirkus Reviews, January 2003
