Told from the mother tiger's point-of-view, two young cubs are taught to swim, stalk, and hunt so that one day they can survive on their own as grown tigers themselves.

Another terrific book all about tigers and their cubs. Simple yet an easy read to teach kids learning to read about tigers and their survival.
Beginning this tale with words that essentially paraphrase Rudyard Kipling's "The Cat Who Walked Alone", this tiger-based picture trail starts with a proud, "I am the tigress. I walk alone". From this point onward we follow a realistic story of a tiger and her cubs. We see her hunt alone, and tend to her babies. We see the family move on to new homes when there's a threat, and we watch the tigress teach the cubs to hunt on their own. Finally, the children leave their mother and she is left alone once more, repeating, "I am the tigress. I walk alone".
The pictures, supplied by the adept Laura Regan, are rendered in oil and goache and look as if they were real enough to pounce. The story itself is simple. Any child obsessed with these overlarge kitty cats will instantly take to the book's delightful rendering of all things striped. Of course, these are hunting animals, so there is death as well (though skillfully left to the reader's imagination). Admittedly, it's just a nice story. Nothing new or brilliant about it. It fills a niche that has been filled before and will be filled again. But those in this world that love tigers will be grateful for it. And in a way, that's all that matters.
