This silly, faux-scary adventure is perfect for read-aloud -- or maybe shout-aloud, as each time the tiger turns up, the type shifts to all-capitals, bold with an exclamation point. Jermy Tankard's bold illustrations, with both tiger and boy outlined in broad black strokes, capture the thrill of hide-and-seek, peek-a-boo, and tag on these colorful pages. And David LaRochelle's inviting text sweeps readers up in the action, with instructions like, "Hurry! Climb that ladder and we'll make our escape."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
