“…a gorgeously illustrated tale about a tiger that sets off in search of his lost smile – it’s prefect for keen little listeners.” – Practical Parenting, June 2007
“A very fresh and appealing book which makes good use of mixed media to convey the feel of a real tiger. Rayner’s broad loose strokes reflect the beauty of the animal, and give him real expression and emotion: so much is conveyed in the flick of his tail.” – www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk, April 2007
