I read it to Beach20 aged 5 aged 5

5 stars
This is a great story for beginner readers. My 5 yr old enjoyed the story and fact it had chapters. He loved that it had chapters, he felt grown. Even though the book had chapters it was still manageable to read in one go.

Beautiful vivid pictures throughout that enhanced the story. 

The story is the tale of a sneaky tiger that is tricked by the farmer.

Looking forward to more stories in this series

A lovely short story about a tiger who gets tricked! Perfect for children  who are struggling to read as short chapters but a nice ks2 storyline. Very impressed and will definitely purchase more bloomsbury young readers for my classroom! I read it to my son who is 5 and he really enjoyed it too.

A lovely short tale from India about a farmer tricking a hungry tiger. The story is broken down into chapters, although short enough to read in one go which means it's good for fluent and struggling readers. It's an easy to follow story and the illustrations are bright and colourful. My daughter enjoyed reading this aloud to me. I also like there are discussion points and ideas to further the exploration of the story.

I read it to Soopa aged 4 aged 4

4 stars
This is a fun little tale of tiger who gets tricked when he tries to eat a farmer! It's short and simple despite being a chapter book so can easily be read in one go. Suitable for those who are just starting to read - it has some longer words thrown in that gave use the opportunity to talk through the meanings. Pleasingly short and a satisfying ending.
