 There's a Tiger in the Garden

Could there be a tiger in YOUR garden? This month we are delighted to feature the beautifully unique and quirky picture book debut, There's a Tiger in the Garden, by Lizzy Stewart, which includes vibrant and textured artwork by the author herself. 

When Grandma says she's seen a tiger in the garden, Nora doesn't believe her. She's too old to play Grandma's silly games! Everyone knows that tigers live in jungles, not gardens.

So even when Nora sees butterflies with wings as big as her arm, and plants that try and eat Jeff her toy giraffe, and a polar bear that likes fishing, she knows there's absolutely, DEFINITELY no way there could be a tiger in the garden...could there? 

Lizzy Stewart has been a freelance illustrator since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009. In 2013, she completed an MA in Communication Design at Central St. Martins. She was selected as one of It's Nice That's Graduates in 2009 and was nominated for a British Comic Book Award in 2013. Her inspirations include folk culture, flora and fauna, life in far-flung cities and a compulsive need to tell stories. Lizzy lives in London, where she teaches on behalf of the National Portrait Gallery. 

There's a Tiger in the Garden is published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books and is available online and from all good booksellers.
