How To Be A Tiger

By George Szirtes

A wonderfully inventive poetry collection for younger readers, covering a range of topics from the ordinary to the outrageous!

"The tiger growls, its eyes ablaze, but we too have our tiger ways, we too can pad through the dark wood of the cosmic neighbourhood." Leap with hares, call out to the sun, run with the wind, pull silly faces with monkeys, watch out for the bear in the bathroom and meet a burping princess! A fantastic new collection for younger children from a prize-winning poet. These poems are perfect for curious young minds, ready for adventures.

  • Very well-known, multi-award-winning poet.
  • “This is what real poetry for children is all about…challenging, mysterious, lyrical [and] profoundly thought provoking.” – Fiona Waters
  • On reading George Szirtes’ poetry: “The world wasn’t the same again.” Michael Rosen
