    One thought on “The Tiger

      i'm glad i read The Fox - the second volume of this standalone graphic novel "series" first. i definitely liked this one, but that fox one made me immediately order this one in with "must have" fervor, and i didn't feel the same sense of urgency after reading this one's the same format as The Fox - wordless sequential art that represents a "day in the life" of a tiger as it hunts, fights, and eventually gets a good meal. the art is great, but it's somewhat less-great than fox. i do not have the [...]

      This book is absolutely gorgeous, a hardcover graphic novel about life in the jungle.It features and follows a tiger, but the tiger also encounters and engages with other animals on his (her?) journey: tapirs, elephants, panthers, peacocks and more.This book has no words and is a graphic novel that is engaging and perfect for any age group, children, teenagers, and adults. It's not childish but it's not "too adult" either. ANYONE of any age could enjoy this.The illustrations are beautiful and br [...]

      A day in the life of the king of the jungle.Somehow I found this graphic novels aimed for children quite ironic. Hard to explain without not revealing the end of the story. (view spoiler)[In the end he got something to eata human. Quite ironic since I felt sorry for the poor tiger that was hungry (hide spoiler)]But what I can say is that the tiger is hunting food and we get to follow it through the day as it tries is best to get a snack and meanwhile it run into other animals both dangerous and [...]

      That is not Bagheera and Shere Kahn on the cover, despite what I thought when I grabbed this book. It is, however, a representation of what Toki and Evie think is happening when they're rough housing (Evie being the tiger and Toki the panther)This book contains depictions of violence and survival within nature. It is intended for ALL AGESHahaha! Not here in the US, it's not! Dude, there's violence and death and slug sex and elephant sex and we must not allow the little childrens to see such hars [...]

      Received from Netgalley for review.It's all about the art. This is a wordless book, so the art has to carry the day. And it absolutely does. I mean, look at that cover. It's beautiful, and detailed, and, most importantly, accurate. The art inside is the same. And it would have to be, for this story. Because this is simply an unsentimental "day in the life" story, except that it's a day in the life of a wild tiger looking for a meal. I know it doesn't sound like much, and it is a very short book. [...]

      A day in the life of a tiger, complete with awe-inspiring artwork and a surprise ending.

    7. Trish on said:

      This is an art book about one day in the life of a tiger. Some scenes remind me a bit of Disney's The Jungle Book bu I might just be too influenced because I grew up with that movie and watched the new life-action version only this past weekend.However, as far as my research showed, the author did a lot of research into the natural behaviour of the tiger so all the encounters shown in this book actually occur like this in the wild (although maybe not all in one day ;P).Anyway, the book has panel [...]

      There's something magical about removing humans from the equation.This wordless, full-color graphic novel follows the journey of a tiger through the jungle, with tangent glimpses into other animal lives. The book itself is large (around the size of a piece of amerikan printer paper) and slim (the narrative ends at page 74), with rounded corners on the cover and stunning end papers. There are poignant quotes before and after the narrative, and a few pages of extra matter at the back.The concept i [...]

      Beautiful artwork and a surprisingly emotional storyline for a book about animals, completely without dialogue.

    10. Andreea on said:

      I received this book from NetGalley for my honest review!In this graphic novel the reader gets to experience a day in a tigers life. The illustrations are dynamic and they present the hard life of a big cat as it searches for food. The art style is absolutely amazing and the colors are vivid making it an amazing read. The artist managed to present the animals and the landscape in their most beautiful way with the help from traditional art.

    11. Amber Sanders on said:

      Beautiful illustrations, the story flowed effortlessly without the use of words, or even sound descriptions. Hard to do considering this is a children's graphic novel. I was completely entranced with what was happening, finding myself invested in not only the tiger's storyline but the animals around him. Still not completely sure how I feel about the tiger and it's eventual success at the very end. Beautifully done 4/5

      Love: The TigerMore like Life: The Tigeruld easily be reflected on how life treats any living being. dialog but quite a powerful book with some deep meaning.

      Avevo già letto qualcosa di Frédéric Brrémaud: i primi quattro volumi francesi (raccolti in due tomi) della serie Gatti, così mi ero ripromessa di tornare a leggere qualcosa di suo. Visto che la serie mi era piaciuta anche se io preferisco i cani ho pensato che l'autore fosse uno di quelli bravi. Così ho aspettato e finalmente son riuscita a mettere le mani su questo gioiellino.Se uno è un po' in là con gli anni come la sottoscritta, di sicuro gli verrà in mente il dinosaurietto Gon di [...]

      Great book, great art. Only warning - this is not a children's book. It's quite intense ;)

      More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Love Volume 1 is the first in a series following a certain wild animal and a day in its life - from the search for food, interaction with other animals, fights with rivals, and afternoon naps (volume 2 follows the story of a fox). The story is nuanced, with many twists and turns. The watercolor artwork is stunning - a joy to explore. Although wordless, the story follows a definitive arc (the search for the day's food). The jungle has [...]

      Also see this review at: karissasbookblog/The Tiger is a graphic novel about the daily life of a tiger. It has no words, and you as the reader must rely on the art to know what is going on. The illustrator makes it very easy to follow what is going on throughout the novel. There are a number of different animals who make an appearance, each with their own unique interaction with the tiger.The tiger goes through various trials throughout its day, with triumphs and defeats abound. My favorite woul [...]

      Review originally posted on my blog The Leaning Tower of Tomes: leaningtoweroftomes.wordpressThe Tiger is a gorgeous depiction of one tiger's day in the jungle. It has no text as the story is told through the colorful and detailed illustrations by Federico Bertolucci. While the book focuses on the tiger that is trying to secure a meal, the story also gives us glimpses of other wildlife going about their lives. It is sad, funny, and serious. I found myself pondering and pausing as the story progr [...]

      This review can be found in its entirety on my blog:Reckless Indulgence | of the Written WordThis story was wonderfully told, like a silent film. There were no words, only visual stimulus to tell a well-thought out tale… of nature and beauty, and a savage, ancient love we as human beings will never understand. It was a true telling of “the circle of life” and all that truly entails. No singing and dancing. Just life and death. Survival of all, not just the fittest. Mankind has long since c [...]

      I admire the bravery of those authors who dare to try something different and succeed, especially in a genre doesn’t allow authors much room for creativity (plot-wise) like the comic and graphic novel. Instead of walking down the beaten path and creating a story whose narrative structure follows the conventions we are used to, Bertolucci and Brrémaud decided to do something more experimental: draw one day in the life of a wild animal.Volume 1 of the Love series follows the misadventures of a [...]

    20. Wayne McCoy on said:

      'Love Volume 1: The Tiger' is a strangely named title for a book about a tiger stalking it's prey (and being stalked). I'm actually not sure where the title comes from based on this book. Still, the glorious illustrations kept me completely glued to the pages. It's a completely wordless book. We only have the pictures to guide us along the story. We see a tiger stalking his prey. The prey is able to vanish by falling into a river. The tiger attempts to catch the critter and finds himself in a fi [...]

    21. BeaCharmed on said:

      This is a book for older children, not little ones, about African tigers. Written in graphic novel style but minus any text, it takes us through a day in the life. There are scenes of the tiger hunting food and fighting with other big cats, with some blood shed so keep an eye on younger readers. While not gory, neither is the violence off the page. There were a few animals I didn't recognize and since there's no text I had to guess. I wish there were an index to clue us in and to give us facts a [...]

    22. Brent on said:

      I had not seen this until now, a wordless view of a jungle ecosystem, following the tiger and neighboring creatures including elephants, panthers, biting fish, and more creatures great and small, even ants. The only human protagonist ends in an unfortunate encounter with the tiger at story's end, and there are some fanciful depictions of beautifully illustrated creatures copulating. So, there is that: this is improperly shelved in the children's section, in some ways. I would love to hear a biol [...]

    23. Theediscerning on said:

      As beautiful as this may be, it's also inherently stupid. In trying to show the saga of a day in the life of a tiger it makes everything in the jungle inter-related, with this eating that then getting chased by the other, while that is on hand for something else again to die, so what we end up with is a bizarre amalgam of spiritual animal horror, fable, and heavily truncated nature documentary about this particular food chain. If it were to have a voice-over it would be one of those stupid, anth [...]

    24. David Schaafsma on said:

      A day in the life of a tiger, with a focus on interactions between the tiger and other animals, sometimes violent, of course, since the tiger is constantly hungry. Silent, it is framed by thoughts about love and hate not being part of the animal kingdom. I thought it was a little Disney-esque, in a bad way, too simplistic, a little too cinematic and cloying though still accomplished art work by Federico Bertolucci.

    25. Sarah Rosenberger on said:

      Absolutely gorgeous art, but I find the claim that it's for all ages iffy. I know it's the circle of life and everything, but seeing a monkey get squeezed to death, a jaguar mauled, and then that final scene would probably give most younger kids nightmares. Good for older readers who love nature documentaries and maybe fans of Pride of Baghdad.

    26. Whitney on said:

      Moral of the story: nature's a beautiful bitch, yo.(view spoiler)[Reading this graphic novel prompted me to do some research on tiger attacks in Asia. While I was surprised at the number of people who die from tiger attacks (whether accidental or not), these occurrences are still rare and I hope no one gets the wrong impression from the ending of this book. bbc/news/world-asia-in (hide spoiler)]

    27. Calliope on said:

      The title seems poorly chosen; it's too broad. The quotes at the beginning and end also feel a bit heavy-handed. The fantastic art in this volume more than make up for that, however. I would recommend this for middle schoolers and up, but mature elementary schoolers wouldn't have too much trouble with it. There's death and violence, including against humans, and the tiniest bit of animal sex that some kids probably wouldn't even notice.

    28. Melle on said:

      Wow. This is a feast for the eyes. A brutal, frightening, glorious, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, sumptuous, vivid, delicious feast. (Except for the pictures of snakes for the ophidiophobes among us. Very realistic, very terrifying, not okay.) It's a wordless story, and it might not be appropriate for all ages and sensitivity levels, but it's a not-to-be missed work of art. It's like a cross between PBS Nature and The Jungle Book but without any words or anthropomorphism.

    29. Valleri on said:

      Animals act without the higher thoughts of humans yet they do harbour emotions comparable to ours. Love is a deep-seated vein running within us all. With beautiful jungle illustrations of scenery and beasts, this wordless graphic novel displayed so many topics with subtlety it had me pondering over it's meaning for the rest of the evening. I eagerly await volume 2.
