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.
