The Tyger Voyage

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.

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

After the breakthrough success of Watership Down, he was able to support his family by writing full-time. Adams won the two most prestigious British children's books awards, the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.
