Description

When Tom visits an art gallery, the eyes of a tiger in a painting follow him around the room. That night when he draws the tiger, something very unusual happens and Tom sets out on a journey full of mysterious experiences. Along the way, he finds that he is much braver than he thought… even around tigers!

After hearing Dianne share her story Tiger Walk, families can take part in a creative activity exploring some of the themes of her magical tale.
