About this title


After getting in trouble because of her little brother Michael, Jessica Ellen imagines a visit from a wonderful giant tiger who can take her flying through the night or eat Michael.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Young's pastel world, sketched on a textured surface, is faithfully reproduced in extraordinary color in this handsome picture book. A little girl resents having to help care for her younger brother, but after an imaginary moonlight flight with a tiger, she decides not to let the tiger take him away. After all, her parents might miss himand she might too. The tiger, sleek, silky and benevolent, comforts the young heroine with its soft fur that warms and keeps her safe. Its bright eyes glisten with understanding while they appear to look right at young listeners. Even everyday objects seem infused with a special magic. Combined with the image-filled narrative, the book is a heavenly treat, a sensuous delight for young children. Nancy Schmidtmann, Our Lady of Mercy School Library, Hicksville, N.Y.

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country. Please check my website for upcoming events. To date, I've issued five catalogues of rare books. Copies may be downloaded on my website ( Print copies may also be requested.
