The buzz about It’s a Tiger!
“It’s a tiger, and it’s sure to be a hit.” Kirkus Reviews
“No matter how scary the circumstances, the deadpan narrative voice reassures children that it’s just a story, and the tiger’s zigzag teeth and soft features imply that he might not be all that dangerous. The repetitive structure, action, frights, and surprise ending should make this a popular storytime pick.” Publishers Weekly
The buzz about Piggy Bunny
“It’s a hilarious absurd story about a pig, but it’s also a cheerful championing of the kind of role play for which “pretend” seems a dismissive term and which sees little kids wearing their superhero capes to the supermarket; even beyond that, it’s a subtle reassurance about finding workable ways to explore a dream or an identity that may seem initially impossible. Tankard employs thickly solid yet fluid brushstrokes in figures that have a touch of Japanese graphic flavor in their streamlined cuteness (…). This will be an enjoyably loopy and stealthily reassuring read-aloud any time of the year.” Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
