Beware of Tigers: 06/17/09
Beware of Tigers is written and illustrated by Dave Horowitz. It's set in New York and follows the adventures of Burp and Chirp, two street wise but wilds foolish birds.
When you live in the big city you don't expect to have run-ins with wild animals. Imagine Burp and Chirp's surprise when a third bird comes along warning of the impending arrival of a tiger!
Sure enough, a tiger arrives (on a bus!) and seeks to eat the birds. My children like to wiggle and pretend to be cats about to pounce just as the tiger is trying his best to charm the birds before pouncing.
I've been asked Beware of Tigers has a happy ending. Chirp and Burp survive their encounter with the tiger. The tiger gets a taste of his own medicine. The only ones who don't fare well are the worms at the beginning. There is some comedic violence but nothing frightening or graphic.
