When Grandma says she’s seen a tiger in the garden, Nora doesn’t believe her. She’s too old to play Grandma’s silly games! Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens…
So even when Nora sees dragonflies with wings as big as her arm, and plants that try and eat her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there’s absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden… Could there?
Written and illustrated by Lizzy Stewart, Nora’s grandma’s garden becomes a paradise filled by fluttering wings, a deep and dangerous jungle, and even a polar fishing pond. The wonderfully independent Nora, accompanied by her best friend Jeff the Giraffe, gradually discovers the fun of imagining in this instant classic.
This magical picture book about imagination and play will spark the interest of every child.
