Description

An adventurous boy defeats an unlikely foe in this story of reading, imagination, and tigers!

Sometimes it’s almost impossible to get your big sister to read your favorite book to you. Sometimes you have to go to great lengths even to get her attention! But if you’re really creative and use your imagination, you might just get what you want. Take care, though, not to go too far. Once you conjure up a tiger, there’s no telling where it might lead…

Author Kashmira Sheth brings readers a humorous, reading-centered story of the dynamic between a younger brother and older sister.

Reviews

“In the current run of titles about older siblings feeding younger ones, this one stands out for its inventive imagery.” ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“Ebbeler truly knocks it out of the park, gleefully building on Sheth’s prose with dynamic perspectives, a realistically detailed (and menacing) tiger, abundant visual hyperbole, and unexpected delights on nearly every page.” ―Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

“Action shots of the narrator defending himself against the menacing cat move the story along, while the girl’s inability to see her brother’s plight adds some comic relief. This is a good story to show how readers can get wrapped up in a book.” ―School Library Journal
