Blog tour: A Tiger Named Lee

Welcome to the blog tour for A Tiger Named Lee by Sinéad Murphy.

More about the book…

Lee is a tiny tiger who lives with his Mum in the safety of his treetop house. There he feels safe from the dangers of the dark jungle below. But one wild stormy night, Lee and his Mum are thrown to the ground and Lee is forced to face his fears in order to help her. A Tiger named Lee tells the story of a timid little tiger who refuses to leave his tree-top perch and go down to the jungle floor for fear of what may lie there. However, he and his Mum are thrown from the tree on a stormy night and the little tiger has to overcome his fears.

More about the author…

Sinéad wrote ‘A Tiger Named Lee,’ for her young daughter to show her that it’s normal to have fears and worries and that help is always there if you ask for it.

More about the illustrator…

Shannon Cresham is an illustrator based in the UK with a love of nature, fantasy, and fairytales with a colourful twist. She graduated from Birmingham City University with a BA in Illustration in 2019, and particularly enjoys designing characters. ‘A Tiger Named Lee’ is Shannon’s first illustrated book to be published.

My thoughts…

A Tiger Named Lee is an adorable book. Beautifully illustrated by Shannon Cresham, it has become a firm favourite in our household. So much of a favourite, in fact, that I can already foresee having to get out scissors and sellotape to fix the accidental tears that result from an overexcited reading time.

My daughter is not yet two and she loves books but doesn’t quite have the patience to sit still for a whole story. The rhyming lines, however, seem to mesmerise her and this is probably the first book that she has sat through from the beginning to the end.

The message of the story is lovely and I am sure we will get back to it time and again as she grows up and finds her own feet in this world.
