"This is a magical book to see, to read, to experience. It tells the enchanting story of Tiger Flower, King of the Grass, who lives where every thing that should be small is big and everything that should be big is small. It is a book that recognizes no age, no time, no limits but those of the imagination. Call it an adult fantasy , a children's story, an allegory of peace - call it anything. It remains what it is; one of the most beautiful and wonderful books ever produced.
24 page hard cover book in very good condition. The illustrations are gorgeous with color and detail. It has a good dust jacket with some age age wear and a few small tears.
