Everything little Tiger hears is new and exciting. When he tells his mother of the sounds all around him she reminds him when you don’t hear them, my son, be ready. The Lord of the Forest is here ! But who is the Lord of the Forest, and when will Tiger find out?

MY REVIEW

Lord of the Forest is a beautiful extra large hardback book. The pictures inside are amazing they look like paintings of animals on each page. Tiger was born fluffy and small. Every time he could hear something his mother would say, “When you don’t hear the forest, then my son, Tiger is still listening for the silence, still waiting for the Lord of the Forest. But who is the Lord of the Forest? Every animal that Tiger meets, they all claim to be the Lord of the Forest. The ending is a big surprise and beautiful.

All children are going to adore this adventure of Lord of the Forest.

Praise for the Lord of the Forest

A lovely lyrical fable Morris’s beautiful watercolours of animals in their natural habitat further distinguish this story about grace, humanity and identity. Kirkus Reviews.
