In this delightful role-reversal story, all the serious little boy wants is to settle down quietly and read his book. But that's not so easy when there's an imaginative tiger with an excess of energy behind the couch, wanting attention and someone to play with. Repetitive refrains and sound effects make this a perfect read-aloud, and the sweet and cozy ending will delight the heart of any book-lover.
