The Tyger Voyage

Framsida
David R. Godine, Publisher, 2013 - 32 sidor
Here, for readers young and old, is the original Tyger Voyage, fraught with suspense and adventure, molten lava and footloose gypsies. In this charming tale, a gentleman tyger and his son set sail in a rather dubious 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.

First published in the US by Knopf in 1976, The Tyger Voyage was enthusiastically received both by the press and by readers, topping the Adult Bestseller list for several weeks! In the years since, it has become a much-loved classic. David R. Godine is proud to bring this unusual and luminous tale back into print in a large-format, full-color hardcover edition.

Om författaren (2013)

Richard Adams, born in 1920, is well known as the author of Watership Down and Shardik, but The Tyger Voyage is more unusual for being among his few children's books and is composed in rhyming quatrains. Adams, a best-selling author worldwide, is also a winner of the Carnegie Medal and lives a relatively quiet life in the English countryside.Nicola Bayley remains one of England's best-loved artists. The Tyger Voyage, her first book, was published to universal acclaim. Her detailed, meticulous, and beguiling pictures have since been recognized by numerous prizes, and she continues to live in London.
