Animal Stories 2: Never Trust a Tiger
By (author) Lari Don; Illustrated by Melanie Williamson
As a merchant makes his way to the market, he comes across a beautiful tiger that has fallen down a hole. The merchant is kind enough to help the tiger out of the hole, but once he does, the tiger wants to eat him! The merchant doesn’t think this is fair …but who is right and how can the merchant get away unscathed? A Barefoot Books Core Title for 2012. Latest in the Early Readers collection, joining the Monster Stories Early series. A traditional tale from Korea with carefully selected vocabulary for new and emerging readers. Author Lari Don, based in Edinburgh, is in great demand as a storyteller for young children and is available for events at schools and literature festivals. Energy and tension of story captured by illustrator Melanie Williamson’s bright artwork.
Lari Don was born in Chile and brought up in Scotland. She has worked in politics and for the BBC, but now spends her time passing on old stories and making up new ones. She is a traditional storyteller, as well as an award-winning children’s author, whose love of myths, legends and fables inspires her fiction. Lari lives in Edinburgh with her family and has also written Little Red Riding Hood for Barefoot Books. Melanie Williamson draws her pictures in a cosy studio in Manchester and loves all things bright and quirky. She doesn’t have a pet tiger, but her cat looks just like a snow leopard…and he can swim! This is her first project with Barefoot Books.
