By Dianne Hofmeyr

One day Tom draws a tiger, inspired by his visit to the art gallery... That night, when Tom can’t sleep, the tiger pads out of his drawing and purrs, “Let’s go for a walk!” It’s the beginning of a magical and life-changing adventure, as the tiger helps Tom to overcome some of his biggest fears.

  • Exciting yet reassuring, this “safe” night-time adventure is perfect for reading aloud
