“Visually, the book is a marvel, with panelafter panel of Bertolucci's gorgeous palette of jungle greens disrupted by thetiger's distinctive orange blaze. The other animals are beautifully rendered,and the storytelling has the feeling of an animated film.” -Publisher's Weekly (StarredReview)

“Visually eloquentstory...” - School LibraryJournal

A day in the life of the king ofthe jungle, this lavishly illustrated story follows a single majestic tigerthrough a wordless adventure of survival as it hunts prey and defends itselffrom other would-be killers defending their territory. This exciting tale istold without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautifulillustrations of Federico Bertolucci.

Abeautiful, all-ages title that explores genuine natural behavior through thedramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling. Like a nature documentary inillustration.

Good visual storytelling.

This is a gorgeously illustrated depiction of a day in the life of a tiger. It is a story of predators, prey, and interconnection. Not only is the tiger's meandering, oft-interrupted hunt portrayed in great detail, also are snippets of other creatures' days that happen to be near the hunt's path--the two snails on a leaf that are knocked into the water for the fish waiting below, for instance. There are a multitude of encounters, big and small, that provide a fascinating look at an ecology in action. By it's very nature, the book only loosely follows a plot and only vaguely tells a story. While this is a necessity of portraying events realistically, it kept the book from being as engaging as I would have liked. Good; not great.

Beautiful, beautiful graphic novel! The Tiger, the first volume in the Love series, was a mesmerizing story. Beautifully done! Frédéric Brrémaud's writing is deep, Federico Bertolucci's illustrations are captivating. Reading The Tiger was like flipping through a National Geographic magazine. Elephants, snakes, panthers, monkeys, and many more animals were portrayed in beautiful display. I highly recommend The Tiger.

A well told story and the art is definitely gorgeous. It's cataloged as a juvenile graphic novel, but I wouldn't personally give it to young kids, especially those easily upset over gore and animals dying.

Absolutely beautiful painting & story. Not just about a tiger, there's many other stories within...peacocks, panthers, a fox, etc. No dialogue needed. It even has a happy ending ;)

A gorgeous, wordless graphic novel about the day in the life of a tiger.

In the animal kingdom, animals neither love nor hate each other.

Love and hate are parts of a natural whole. A supreme balance many consider to be universal, or even divine. An elemental love.

A love that mankind could never experience.
