Annotation:
This simply written picture book from India features an adventurous tiger who dives into the water and swims to a new region. He's immediately frightened by the sight of a goat, and climbs up a tree to escape. A band of incredulous hunters see him in the tree and surround him with a net. They try to scare him into leaping down, using an assortment of drums and horns ("Shoo him! Boo him! Make him jump!"). Once they've captured the tiger, they don't know what to do with him, and eventually set him free. Ravishankar wrote the text with reading aloud to young children in mind, and the bold typeface twists and turns across the page. The minimalist but expressive illustrations use only a palette of black, white, and orange, matching a tiger's stripes.
