Most of the time Ravi can control his temper but, one day, he lets out the tiger within … Being a tiger is great fun at first – tigers can do ANYTHING they want! But who wants to play with a growling, roaring, noisy, wild tiger who won't share or play nicely? Ravi is about to discover something very important about expressing his feelings and making amends.
A clever and engaging book about temper tantrums, dealing with emotions and learning to express and understand your feelings. From Tom Percival's bestselling Big Bright Feelings series, this is the perfect book for helping with bad days and noisy outbursts.
Longlisted for the BookTrust StoryTime Prize 2020
Ravi, a brown-skinned boy in a jaunty striped polo shirt and red shorts, feels the limitations of being "the youngest/ and the smallest/ in his family." After he fails to spot the others during hide-and-seek and struggles to navigate the playground, Ravi becomes progressively angrier and visibly redder as he runs into incessant obstacles. When his father takes him for a consolation ice cream and there is none left for him, Ravi morphs into a flaming orange tiger, letting out a "ROAR!" This fearsome transformation gets Ravi everything no person or thing stands in his way. Though he "did exactly what he wanted," the others cease wanting to play with the wound-up feline, and after he apologizes for his rampage, Ravi turns back into a boy again. A note that Ravi's transformation is an isolated incident perhaps undercuts the idea that everyone becomes deeply frustrated from time to time. Still, the narrative's sentiment is earnest, and its familial affection, clear. Percival's textural, digitally rendered artwork moves from color into grayscale as Ravi's transformation occurs, and the child's fiery emotions hold the spotlight. Ages 3 6. \n
