Tiger in a Tutu

Tiger in a Tutu

Max isn’t like other tigers – he is a tiger with a dream! He longs to pirouette and plié, to leap and spin. He wants to be a dazzling ballet dancer, shining on the stage … and a very special friend might just help his dream come true.

A delightfully funny story about friendship, self-belief and following your dreams.

“The saga of Max and his determination to get on the stage reads something like a fun version of Billy Elliot.” Independent

“Little dancers will love to see Max triumph and get his moment in the spotlight.” Parents in Touch

Set in Paris, the saga of Max and his determination to get on the stage reads something like a fun version of Billy Elliot ... engagingly romantic

A touching tale of friendship beautifully illustrated, with echoes of the classics Madeline and Eloise in Paris
Nursery World
It's a sweet tale of following your dreams and being determined to succeed, but it's also a story of friendship and what can be achieved when you are not alone. This is Brazilian Fabi's debut book, and she looks set to have a bright future. The graduate of the Cambridge School of Art loves screen-printed images and those in this picture book are bold and have a distinctive vintage feel to them (they remind me a little of Richard Scarry's illustrations
Nottingham Post

This book is perfect. Not an ounce of it could be improved, and it left me with a warm feeling inside. If that doesn't say très bien I don't know what does.
