Tiger Trouble!

Tiger Trouble, by Diane Goode
Blue Sky Press 2001
The picture book Tiger Trouble!, by author / illustrator Diane Goode, is well worth owning.

It chronicles the daily life of Jack and Lily, his tiger in New York City.  The boy and his pet are best friends;  they go everywhere together.  But trouble arises when Mildew Mud arrives on the scene with his pampered bulldog.

This classic offering from Goode showcases a lovely simplified style.  The pastel palette and soft edges paint a nostalgic look at turn-of-the-century New York without being sentimental.  Action and a good bit of whimsy round out the tale that is sure to please even picky readers.
