Tiger is a small, strong, and stripy cub. He lives with his mother and sisters in a forest in India. Through this gentle and lovingly illustrated picture book, children can enter a young tiger’s world and watch him grow. As a little cub, he plays happily with his sisters, tumbling and pouncing in the grass, and recognizes every sight, sound, and smell of his jungle home. Gradually, he learns how to hunt for himself, and begins to explore the nearby hills, streams, and paths for days at a time. Eventually, he’s ready to leave his family and find his own place in the forest. Rich, dramatic illustrations and an introduction filled with tiger facts teach children about this rapidly disappearing species.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3–Tiger tumbles and romps with his two sisters in the Indian forest. Soon he is big enough to venture out alone. He explores the surrounding country for days at a time, but always returns to his family. One day, he realizes that he must find his own territory. In his search of a new one, he crosses an older tiger's path, running away when the scary beast threatens to attack. Tiger does not stop until he reaches a new part of the forest where just like in his old home, there is a stream nearby with fluttering butterflies. He marks his territory and curls up for a nap, content to have found an ideal home. Although the narrative is a bit didactic, the vivid paintings add some emotional appeal to the story. The cubs are adorable and the hill and the stream and the path that runs through the grass, all painted in lovely shades of green and burnt orange, charmingly evoke the forest locale. An author's note provides information about the tiger's physical characteristics, behaviors, and status as an endangered species.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
