Reviews

"A white tiger transports a yellow dining room chair on a fantastic voyage across varied landscapes. Each spread features a single topographic designation. The tiger swims, climbs, hikes, rows, and meanders his way across a tundra, estuary, atoll, cloud forest, and more. The wonderful illustrations will excite viewers about the natural world."--School Library Journal
"[S]tunning artwork makes a case for environmentalism and will have readers strapping on a chair and heading out in search of our planet's diverse and wondrous beauty."-- Booklist, starred review
"Eggers (What Can a Citizen Do?) and newcomer Chang imagine a wild world emptied of humans, their buildings, their vehicles, and their trash-landscapes that make [a] tiger's expedition gloriously free and startlingly beautiful."--Publishers Weekly
"Dave Eggers's stunning picture book introduces the youngest readers to words that identify the natural world's wonders."-- Shelf Awareness, starred review
"An artistic envisioning of a list poem, of sorts, about place. Repeated perusals will have readers proclaiming it's grrrrr-eat."-- Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

"As entertaining as it is educational, this book has much to offer young naturalists and budding scientists."-Horn Book Magazine
