Lord of the Forest

Lord of the Forest

Pitcher, Caroline; Morris, Jackie

Everything in the forest is new and exciting for little Tiger - grass growing long after rain, snakes slithering, Monkey whooping to his tribe. But every time Tiger tells his mother what he hears, she says, "When you don't hear them, then, my son, be ready. The Lord of the Forest is here!" Tiger is puzzled, and can't help wondering: who can the Lord of the Forest be? Children will enjoy this book again and again with Caroline Pitcher's lyrical storytelling and Jackie Morris's superlative portrayal of the forest and its inhabitants in all their magnificence

Beautifully illustrated
Riveting Reads SLA||It would be no exaggeration to hold up this book as an outstanding example of the art of the picture book in which the combined qualities of text, illustration, typography and book design are brought together in an almost perfect combination. Morris' watercolours alone should earn it a place in any school library.
School Librarian||Best animal picture book of the season ... holds the reader in suspense until the very last page.
Economist||Both the writing and the illustrations in this book are magnificent complementing eachother and giving a vivid picture of life in the jungle, while representing changes of mood and pace.
