Lord of the Forest is a lovely little book by Caroline Pitcher with illustrations by Jackie Morris. It tells the story of a tiger cub who listens to the sounds of the forest when he is young. His mother tells him that when everything goes quiet the Lord of the Forest will come. The tiger is fascinated by this and determined to find out who the Lord of the Forest could be. Is it the beatiful peacock with his magnificent feathers, the rhino, the enormous elephant ar perhaps some other creature that the tiger hasn’t even considered?
This would make a wonderful gift and was a sheer joy to read. The illustrations are absolutely stunning and really bring the book to life.
Thank you to Frances Lincoln Books for sending us a copy to review.
