Poor Little Tiger. His grandmother Tiger gives him some strange advice: "Do something nobody else does!" Puzzled but determined, Little Tiger thinks about what she means. When he returns he's a changed Little Tiger. He does whatever he can to be unique, and as he grows up he sees that he is different. Then Tiger -- no longer Little Tiger -- sets out far from home, traveling to Africa and Asia, and deep into Turkestan, understanding himself a little more with each step. Tiger becomes a great teacher of the dance, always helping "others to find joy in being themselves." -- Hogrogian is a two-time winner of the Caldecott Medal for her books Always Room for One More and One Fine Day -- Whimsical watercolors convey a simple lesson of becoming who you really are -- Parents will appreciate Tiger as a subtle allegory of Gurdjieff, and find his dance reminiscent of the mystical and beautiful dancing of Sufism

Publishers Weekly, 2002-08-26 "Do something nobody else does!" are the dying words of Little Tiger's grandmamma. Little Tiger is a particularly reflective feline in Hogrogian's (Always Room for One More; One Fine Day) most striking picture, his orange eyes peer out with poignant intensity from a scrim of emerald leaves. But at first, Little Tiger can only interpret her advice in terms of playful behavior: "If the other tigers ran forward, Little Tiger was sure to run backward. When the tigers raced to the watering hole, Little Tiger hopped all the way." As Little Tiger matures into a more imposing figure and travels the world, his understanding and sense of self deepens. "One day when Tiger's heart was full, he began to dance." Thus he discovers his calling: to be a teacher of dance to other animals, "one who helped others to find joy in being themselves." The soft-spoken earnestness of the text (the book is dedicated to the mystic G.I. Gurdjieff) may make this title more suitable to adults, and the renderings of the protagonist vary in their success at times, there's an awkward bulkiness to his physique. Still, the strength in Tiger's eyes is unmistakable, and Hogrogian's watercolors demonstrate a lovely quietude and restraint reminiscent of traditional Asian painting. Contemplatively inclined children may well appreciate Tiger's mission. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
