Whenever Emily doesn't get her way, she growls and roars like a tiger. She roars when her mother tries to cut her hair, she roars when she doesn't get picked to be the clown's assistant at a birthday party...what are her mum and dad going to do with their tiger-daughter? Then Grandma comes to stay - and she knows a thing or two about tigers. This title shows children how to manage their own feelings of frustration and anger as they see how Emily develops her personal and social skills. Aimed at the grandparent market - it features a spirited and characterful grandmother!
Miriam Latimer studied illustration at the University of the West of England, gaining a first class honours degree in 2003. She says of her work: "I spend a lot of time daydreaming, thinking of ideas - that's the easy bit. It's then calming the ideas down and putting them in a readable format that is the hard part." This is Miriam's third project with Barefoot Books, following The Prince's Bedtime (HB 978-1-84148-549-2: PB 978-18486-105-5) and Shrinking Sam (978-1-84686-038-6).
