Anna Currey's Tickling Tigers tells the tale of Hannibal, a very small mouse with a very big ego. He boasts to his friends that he can do anything. He can even walk straight up to a huge tiger and tickle him -- and that is exactly what Hannibal sets out to do! At first, tickling a tiger appears to be very easy, but young readers can watch what happens when the tiger wakes up! Whimsical and wonderful watercolor illustrations fill every page of this delightful story. Children will love watching Hannibal tell his story, which is slightly more embellished than what actually happens to him! Tickling Tigers is a delightful, lovely, and very entertaining picturebook story. -- Midwest Book Review

From Booklist:

Ages 3^-5. Hannibal is a boastful little mouse, who tells his friends he can tickle a tiger with a bit of grass. And so he can--it's easy--as long as the tiger is asleep. But once that tiger wakes up, he's mad. He and his friends go chasing the mouse through snake-infested jungles and past crocodiles. When they catch him, they argue about who will eat him, and thus lose him in the process, leaving Hannibal to return home and continue his bragging. The story is simple but has enough action to satisfy the pre-school set. Currey's ink-and-watercolor artwork is soft and funny and features characters with lots of personality. Little kids will identify with the boastful Hannibal. Ilene Cooper
