NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER is the story of a little girl and her great imagination. Her imagination involves numerous animals that live in her home and cause chaos leading her to get into trouble. Then a pink tiger follows here home from the zoo and the other animals are not too happy.

Since I lead Storytime at our local library, children's books are always part of my book search. I am always looking for unique books that I can share that are also fun to read aloud and get the kids interested. NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER is just that kind of book. There are even coloring pages and crafts available on the website to go along with the book!
As you can tell from the cover photo and from this page, the illustrations are bright and colorful. This is key to getting the child's attention right away. The pictures are also fun and the antics of the animals in the story will easily bring out the giggles.
I also like how a unique animal, like a emu, is used in the story. This allows the opportunity to teach the child about a new animal.
Nalah has a vibrant and wild imagination. She finds all kinds of ways to explain messes, disruptions, and mishaps that happen in her life by blaming them on the animals. This book will encourage the child in your life to have a vivid imagination. After reading this story, I bet your child will want to have a pig living in their bathroom too!

She is a Minnesota State Arts Board Roster Artist, which means she teaches puppetry all over the state and has a lot of talented friends with strange skill sets. She lives in Minneapolis with her computer genius husband and a pack of imaginary dogs. NALAH AND THE PINK TIGER is her first book.
