Tiger Walk | Children & Youth
Dianne Hofmeyr , Jesse Hodgson (illus.)
A lyrical story about overcoming universal childhood fears. 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!" Tom is afraid, but the tiger's presence is reassuring as they set off into the forest. One by one, Tom's fears are allayed by the tiger, and when the journey is over, back home in his bed, Tom falls peacefully asleep.
