1 Review
Rat and Tiger are best friends, but Rat is tired of Tiger always getting his way. One day Tiger goes too far and Rat gets really angry. What will happen to their friendship? And more importantly, will Rat become Tiger's next meal?"Kasza here delivers a valuable lesson cunningly and effectively. With their drolly expressive faces, Tiger and Rat pass on the importance of sharing, playing fairly and treating others as you'd like to be treated". -- Publishers Weekly"Appealingly written and deftly illustrated, this gently humorous book is an entertaining and delightful story of friendship.... A worthwhile acquisition that children and parents will check out over and over again". -- Booklist"Bright watercolor illustrations depict appealing characters with wonderfully expressive features. A simple text and repetitive plot elements make this a good choice for both story times and for beginning readers". -- School Library Journal
