What do you do with a tiger named Louis who came from the sea?

One morning, Ali and Ollie are awoken by a beastly snore. They look out the window and what do they see? Is it a giant carrot? A pumpkin? No, it's a tiger, soaking wet and fast asleep. They decide his name must be Louis and he must have come from the sea. Ali and Ollie agree that he's hungry, so they venture outside with milk and cereal. When Mother and Father join them, Louis wakes up with a mighty roar. Everyone scampers inside -- followed by Louis, who pads in through the open door. While the family huddles upstairs, Louis sleeps by the fire and luxuriates in the bathtub. Before long, Ali and Ollie come up with an ingenious plan to help Louis return to the sea.

Readers will be captivated by Sholto Walker's humorous illustrations, which heighten the charm and originality of Michal Kozlowski's spirited tale.

Review:

The family's reaction to the slumbering, soaking wet beast that shows up on its lawn one morning is both humorous and imaginative.... Walker's wacky, softly colored line drawings are filled with fluid movement befitting the seaside setting and are reminiscent of Nancy Carpenter's signature scribbles. (Jenna Boles School Library Journal 2011-08-01)

A book for sharing, for laughter and most of all for developing unique ways to dispose of unwanted tigers you might find in your house. (Ellen Donogh Canadian Children's Book News)

Read this one aloud to your little ones: they'll eat it up. (Monica Stark January Magazine)

On the other hand, if you can appreciate whacky logic and enjoy engaging illustrations with thoughtful background details and telling facial expressions, you will find yourself reading this story over and over until it eventually almost makes sense. (David Sulz The Deakin Review of Children's Literature)

It's a great book illustrating how children and parents can cooperate under very original circumstances. (Jacqueline Snider Resource Links)

The family's reaction to the slumbering, soaking-wet beast that shows up on its lawn one morning is both humorous and imaginative. (Jenna Boles School Library Journal)

First-time author Michal Kozlowski has a rich imagination, and this tale would be delightful as a bedtime story told by a fun-loving parent with a penchant for inventing tall tales. (Quill and Quire)

This book will impress you, not for what picture books typically do well, but for what they typically do not. Rather than rely on illustrations to engage children, Kozlowski gets the job done with the text alone: the storyline abandons the restraints of predictability and instead draws children into the glamour of the enchantingly implausible... the colourful, quirky, and captivating artwork by Sholto Walker...[is] as bang-on brilliant as the text itself. (Kimberley Siwak Canadian Teacher)
