Reading isn't easy when you have a tiger behind your couch that wants to play. After admonishing him several times, the tiger gets interested in the story. Thus, the little boy can read to himself and the tiger.
What I thought: This fun book will definitely appeal to many. I love that the child takes on a parental role while the tiger is cast as the misbehaving child. I loved the illustrations. Great use of white space. My favorites are the tiger as the engineer and the karate tiger.
