Tiger wants to make a cake. A chocolate cake. The four other animals want to make one too but none of them likes chocolate. Tiger is bossy and mean and won’t listen to any other suggestions but rabbit, bear, dog and monkey have their own way in the end. Or do they? Children and adults may put a very different interpretation on the resolution of the story.
Bright colours, speech bubbles and full of situations that will be familiar to all children.
