A tiger sleeping under a tree hears some birds talking. The birds think they are more important that any other creature and want the Tiger to fetch them food so they can spend more time looking at themselves. The Tiger does as asked but warns the birds there will be a price to pay - and there is! The book is intended for the age group of 4 to 7 years old and has coloured illustrations throughout. At the end there are questions and ideas for creative play based on the words and the pictures in the book. The book has been trialled with children with different reading, observational and counting skills and has proved to be successful.
