Review of The Tiger and the Wise Man

This is from a series of traditional tales with a twist. A wise man is tricked by a tiger and thinks he will be eaten, especially as all the animals which he has asked to help are against him. How will he escape from the tiger’s jaws, and how does the jackal outwit the wily tiger and capture the wise man for his own dinner? Does the wise man manage to escape for a second time? Read on and find out. The text is in large print for small children and the illustrations by Diana Mayo are brilliantly coloured and delightful, often covering a double page. Look at the tiger’s varying expressions, they are fascinating. This is for young readers of KS1 or those who like being read to. A good dramatic story.
