A fantasy filled with humor, suspense, and adventure by the author of the classic, Watership Down. A gentleman tyger and his son set sail on a boat into the unknown. Together they roam across the seas, through jungles, past ice-covered mountains and erupting volcanoes to be rescued at last by a troupe of gypsies. Eventually they return in triumph to Victorian England with many an extraordinary tale to tell. This is a much beloved tale as a read-aloud and for poring over the exquisitely detailed illustrations by Nicola Bayley.
Bayley is a brilliant artist whose pictures glow like medieval manuscripts.
—Alison Lurie, The New York Times
Nicola Bayley has created spectacular scenes, exquisitely detailed and enhanced by an inspired use of color.
The Tyger Voyage represents a near-perfect collaboration of writer and artist. In keeping with the 19th-century mood of the story, one should say, “Hip, Hip, Huzza!”
—Jerome Cushman, Los Angeles Times Book Review
