“I’ll be king of beasts by the time the moon rises,” said the tiger. And so begins this now classic fable about the hunger for omnipotence and pointless strife.
Gorgeously illustrated and including two gatefolds that give us a panoramic jungle at war, The Tiger Who Would Be King is as entertaining as it is wise, as wry as it is passionate.
Yoon's humorous images support this beautifully written text by James Thurber with wit and insight. Her final portrait of the tiger in a sea of silence will stay with the reader for a long, long time.
