Tiger Hunt: An Island Brothers Adventure {Book Review}


Tiger Hunt is an adventure that my children enjoyed going on.  They were lost in the story of two brothers, Charles and Thomas, who lived on a beautiful island that was said to have many tigers living on it. As I read the story, I enjoyed seeing their expressions of wonder as they listened to the story the father chichack told his family as they sat around the fire, the old story of how the tigers used to own the island they now inhabited.

This story within a story tells of an adventure that the brothers take together to find the last tiger on the island.  They searched around the highest volcano, ate pineapples fresh from the tree, and boiled a lobster from the sea.  The brothers were even able to test the folk tale of the frangipani flower and how the smell tames a tiger.  As much as my children enjoyed this story and all that the brothers experienced during their search, not once did they realize they were learning at the same time.

If you are looking for a book full of adventure that teaches about the islands, this may be the book for you.  Your children will enjoy following the brothers as they prepare for their long journey through the jungle, searching for the tiger that stayed behind while its family sailed to another island in search of food.  They will enjoy the family of chichacks as they eat around the fire listening to Pak Chichack telling stories.  However, be careful, as your children may become inspired to go on their own adventure as well!
