About the Book:
Nalah and the Pink Tiger is a picture book by Anne Sawyer-Aitch. She drew inspiration for this story from her lively little niece, who lives so intensely in her imagination that grown-ups around her view her as a troublemaker. Things come to a head when – in addition to all the exotic animals that Nalah has “placed” in the house – a pink tiger “follows” her home from the zoo and creates havoc. The story also celebrates the joyful explosiveness of a child’s imagination. To illustrate the book, Anne developed a style which she calls illuminated iIllustration, featuring multiple layers and backlighting that create vibrant, textured pages.
The illustrations in this book are brilliant! So colorful and dimensional. I am guessing that the book doesn't even do justice to the actual illuminated illustrations that Anne designed. I would love to hold each page up to the light and see through them! What a unique style and piece of art work. I so enjoy anytime an author writes and illustrates the book. I just find there to be a special dynamic when the author can put into words and print the beauty of the story.
Nalah has a big imagination full of wild animals that live with her, but her Mother can not see them. There is Mad Tooth the mouse, Percival Prong the pig, Ernestina the Emu and more! These characters are larger than life
