Even when Nora sees enormous butterflies and a fishing polar bear, she knows there’s no way there could be a tiger in the garden . . .

The Guardian ‘Gentle humour, appealing characters – the grumpy polar bear is a particular favourite – and a striking design make for an accomplished debut.’
BookTrust ‘A sweet and surreal story with lush painterly illustrations and a high quality production make this feel like a really special book.’
Books for Keeps - 5 star review - 'richly imagined and deftly executed by debut picture book creator, Lizzie Stewart.'
Great illustrations. Great story.
I share reading with my children and this is one special one I can recommend.
Absolutely charming. If you are planning your gift list for Christmas do make sure you include this book.
