The Sea Tiger is Oscar’s best friend—and Oscar’s only friend. They do everything together: explore the ocean, visit the sea circus, even hitch a ride to the surface to look at the stars. But Oscar is shy, and so it’s up to the Sea Tiger to help him find other friends. A bittersweet tale from a stunning talent in children’s illustration.
About the Author
Victoria Turnbull has drawn from her vivid imagination since she was a child. The Sea Tiger is her debut picture book. She lives in England.
With a twist near the end, readers are encouraged to consider love through separation. A sweetly imaginative story about friendship whose message will linger. —Kirkus Reviews
A chorus of singing sea turtles, octopuses transformed into underwater hot-air balloons, and other wild imaginings give Turnbull’s setting an enchanting magic as she quietly reveals the benefits of extending a hand, or paw, of friendship. —Publishers Weekly
A lovely, whimsical fable about the power of friendship and what it takes to overcome shyness. —Booklist
