A beautifully designed, boldly illustrated picture book for the very young in which readers are encouraged to get involved in the story through tilting and shaking the book and even singing a lullaby! This paperback edition includes a free audio reading.
Tiger is fast asleep, but oh dear! She's lying completely in the way. Just how will the animals get past without waking her up? Luckily, Frog has an excellent idea and, holding his balloon, he floats right over sleeping Tiger! Fox is next, followed by Tortoise, Mouse and Stork, but it will be tricky for them all to get past without Tiger noticing! It's a good job that the reader is there to help keep Tiger asleep, isn't it? But where exactly are they going with all those big shiny balloons? Do you think it might be someone's birthday? Can you guess who?
