There's nothing to do at Grandma's house and Nora refuses to believe any outlandish tales of dragonflies as big as birds, grumpy polar bears who like to fish, or a magnificent tiger all allegedly residing in Grandma's garden. Nora's too old for silly games! Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens.
So even when Nora sees dragonflies as big as birds, and plants that try to eat her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there's absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden... Could there? This charming picture book proves you are never too young or too old to dream — and adventure can find you when you least expect it.
"First-time author-illustrator Stewart portrays the garden with a Rousseaulike lushness and fantasy: dragonflies fill the sky with wings that look like stained-glassed windows, and among the flora are hungry-looking plants that resemble bright red lips with teeth.... Nora more than meets her match in the sleek, unruffled tiger, who Grandma later admits might just be a ginger cat. 'Are you real?' Nora asks. 'I don’t know,' the tiger replies. 'Are you?'" — Publishers Weekly
