The Tiger book cover

The Tiger

Our very shortest books, with just 8 pages and one sentence per page, give young children the satisfaction of reading a book all by themselves.

This title is by Beth Gilfillan, from the Ermera Library's literacy program in East Timor. A tiger confronts and defeats three other powerful animals: an elephant, a crocodile, and a snake, only to run in fright from the lowly bee.
