• Tigress 1991

    From inside a forest sanctuary, monkeys’ calls warn deer that a tigress is near. The hungry tigress and her cubs climb to the edge of the sanctuary, tempted by the scent of camels and goats beyond. Herdsmen have a plan to save their herds and the tigers too. This story is based on a real wildlife sanctuary in India and vibrant & dramatic paintings help us to feel transported to the world of the beautiful, endangered tigress.

    The Horn Book

    Told with the absolute minimum of words and in brilliant, stylized pictures which play skilfully with light and shade and the strong patterns of natural form.

    The Junior Bookshelf

    ...Striking picture-book study of an Indian tiger sanctuary. The paintings catch the great tigress in a kind of hold motion : you are in the jungle, your senses on the alert.
