Fox the Tiger by Corey R. Tabor

Can A Fox Really Be A Tiger?

The first illustration shows Fox reading a book about tigers.
"I wish I were a tiger," says Fox."
Now, why would a fox want to be a tiger? Well, tigers are big, fast, sneaky, and the best!
So what's a fox to do? Perhaps find a way to look like a tiger! Maybe a little paint will help?

But when fox meets Turtle and tries to appear ferocious it doesn't quite work out.
"Hello, Fox," says Turtle."
Fox tries to tell Turtle that he isn't Fox. He's a Tiger.
Turtle assumes two can play this game. When he returns he has a surprise for Fox. He too has found some paint.
"I am not Turtle. I am Race Car," says Race Car." 
By now Rabbit has happened upon the scene.
"Wait here," says Rabbit.
Oh, oh, what's Rabbit up to?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most: Using very few words, many repetitive, this is a really cute first reader. Both the text and illustrations are entertaining and as a plus, there is a small but great message included.
