K-Gr 2–In line with the aphorism, ‘Go get ’em, Tiger!’ the main character in this book is a tiger. Other cheerfully illustrated animals provide the tiger with support in a wide variety of affirming situations. For instance, mice paint a rainbow of stripes on tiger for staying unapologetically true to its spirit, although the animal is not afraid to change its stripes if necessary. Each page contains a similar empowering or congratulatory sentiment. Ebullient composition, digitally illustrated with bright and neon colors, fill the pages with energy. The text is bold, not too wordy, and uses key words and phrases, like “land on your paws” and “fur-ious” illustrated in colorful script for emphasis. This book was created by the team behind the greeting card company Hello!Lucky, which also makes board books. While this book does have a gift vibe, it still could have a place on library bookshelves.
VERDICT The dynamic illustrations may attract young readers, and the message is universally affirming to all readers.
