|Tiger Trouble, by Diane Goode|
Blue Sky Press 2001
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.
