Description - Never Trust a Tiger: A Tale from Korea by Lari Don
A merchant and tiger debate whether or not life is fair - and whether the tiger can eat the merchant who has just rescued him. This witty, critically acclaimed illustrated chapter book retelling of a folk tale from Korea is available individually and as part of the Stories from around the World: 4 Tales of Problem-Solving & Wit set. AGES: 6 to 10 AUTHOR: Lari Don was born in Chile, brought up in Scotland and now lives in Edinburgh, UK, with her family. Lari is a storyteller and award-winning children's author. Melanie Williamson paints her illustrations in a cosy studio in Manchester, UK and loves all things bright and quirky. She doesn't have a pet tiger, but her cat looks just like a snow leopard... and it can swim! SELLING POINTS: Introduces children to a folk tale from Korea that both shows specific aspects of Korean culture and reminds readers of how much we all have in common. Complex, exciting plots and immersive, full-colour artwork empower children who are just beginning to enjoy chapter books to grasp more advanced vocabulary and sentence structure. Bright artwork and the characters' silly speech bubbles are a delight throughout, while the head-scratching rabbit's existential "What is fair?" question will prompt an especially good chuckle from adults.
