Book Feature: Tiger In My Soup, Written by Kashmira Sheth, Illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler

A sister and brother battle it out in this story of imagination, reading and tigers!!

When a boy is left in the care of his older sister, he begs her to read to him his favorite book about tigers, but she's too absorbed in her own reading to pay him any attention. She won't be distracted, even when the boy finds a ravenous tiger hiding in his soup!

His sister misses all the action, only after the steamy beast is slain does she return to the table with her brother and finally agree to read to him. But is the tiger really gone?

Jeffrey Ebbeler's bright and exciting illustrations bring the action to life while Kashmira Sheth's fun and entertaining story reinforces a strong love of books and reading.
