Crossing the River, Hardback Book

Crossing the River Hardback


What is a tiger to do when it can't cross the river?

One day in the jungle, an elephant starts to cross a river when behind him comes a pair of tigers, beautifully striped, as tigers should be. "Wait for us, lovely elephant! We want to cross without getting our fur wet. Can you take us on your back?" The elephant shrugs his shoulders. "Of course. For a strong animal like me, one tiger, two tigers ...

It's not a big deal. Have a ride." "Thank you, beautiful elephant!" Thus begins this beautifully illustrated story, reminding young readers of the value of manners, cooperation and kindness.

Muted primary colours and realistic renditions of the wild animals engage and delight.

The story's joyful appeal and the large easy text will have children returning to the story again and again.
