Two Tiger Tales

Two tiger tales.

retold by Barbara Beveridge

illustrated by Caroline Campbell and Ali Teo

This book contains two folk tales in which tigers are outwitted by smaller animals. In “The Clumsy Tiger”, a tiger asks a cat to teach him to become quick and clever. The tiger learns fast, but there is one thing the clever cat realises he shouldn’t teach him! “The Competition” describes how a small but clever frog is able to scare away a tiger.

The two stories are available as individual audio files for download:
