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

The Guardian â€˜Gentle humour, appealing characters â€“ the grumpy polar bear is a particular favourite â€“ and a striking design make for an accomplished debut.â€™
BookTrust â€˜A sweet and surreal story with lush painterly illustrations and a high quality production make this feel like a really special book.â€™

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.
