About this title


An old woman refuses to share her dinner with her hungry little cat, and when the woman throws the cat out into the rainy night, the cat grows into a tiger and teaches the woman a lesson in sharing.

From Publishers Weekly:

Unceremoniously dumped out into the rain and denied even a "teeny tiny taste" of the special dinner his mistress has spent all day cooking for herself, a winsome puss takes his revenge when rage swells him to the size of a tiger. Crashing the party of one, he devours the meal and teaches the greedy cook a thing or two about sharing. In the end, post-prandial shrinkage occurs, and woman and cat reach an understanding. Rankin, a South African author making her U.S. debut, moderates her tone between tart and tender; her agreeably quirky sense of humor at times recalls the work of Margaret Mahy. The meltingly soft, slightly blurred watercolors are arrayed in sherbet hues that make the judicious use of stronger colors-the scarlet of the cook's angry cheeks, the vibrant orange stripes of the little cat-all the more effective. Ages 4-8.
