NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER
ABOUT NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER
Nalah and the Pink Tiger is a picture book by Anne Sawyer-Aitch. She drew inspiration for this story from her lively little niece, who lives so intensely in her imagination that grown-ups around her view her as a troublemaker. Things come to a head when – in addition to all the exotic animals that Nalah has “placed” in the house – a pink tiger “follows” her home from the zoo and creates havoc. The story also celebrates the joyful explosiveness of a child’s imagination. To illustrate the book, Anne developed a style which she calls illuminated iIllustration, featuring multiple layers and backlighting that create vibrant, textured pages.

NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER by Anne Sawyer-Aitch is a cute,whimsical children’s picture book. Nalah has a very delightful and vivid imagination,which makes some call her a “troublemaker”,especially when a “pink” tiger follows her home from the Zoo. You see Nalah loves animals. What a wonderful way to encourage children’s imaginations. A perfect book for 3-4 year olds,with beautiful illustrations. Well written,even us older children can not help but enjoy Nalah’s antics and her imagination. I would highly recommend this title to grandparents,and parents alike to read to their little ones. Received for an honest review from the author.
