    1. A gentleman tiger takes his son on sailing voyage which encounters unexpected hazards in this Richard Adams poem beautifully illustrated by Nicola Bayley.Set in the Edwardian era, period feel is delicately captured by both narration and illustration. The story itself is related at second hand by a neighbor who saw the explorers off and heard about their adventures when they are finally returned. This distancing diminishing the emotional impact of the dangers in a way that suits the stiff-upper-l [...]

    2. A picture book with beautiful illustrations. On a list I came across of books that are out of print and are must-reads. Written old school rhyming style, even though not my favorite way to prowl through a picture book, I did enjoy the creative choices - "went poaching witht the Romany Chal, and read the Tarot magical. And so like gypsies, lean and tanned, They travelled on from land to land". Reading old children's books is always a pleasure.

    3. I am now 33 and was lucky enough to find this book again that was read to me as a child. I remember becoming engrossed in it as a child and the wonderful drawings you could look at for hours! I love it as much now as I did then and delighted to have found a good second hand copy online about 4 years ago. I am looking forward to reading it to my children in the future.What an amazing book!!

    4. I ordered this online because it is out of print - I saw some of the artwork in another book and really liked it. the paintings are beautiful, but they are smaller than I expected and the printing quality isn't great the text is a bit complicated for a children's picture book. Still, an enjoyable story.

    5. I had no idea Richard Adams ever wrote a book for kids! It is a very fun, rhyming adventure tale of two tygers who set sail on a small boat. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and full of interesting, small details.

    8. Probably one of the most beautiful children's books ever illustrated. It's out of print, but a couple of years ago I managed to track down a used copy that was in good shape.

    10. Some quirky verse, and delicate illustrations about 2 tigers lost at sea. Pretty sophisticated language.
