Publisher's Summary

If you have ever enjoyed The Gruffalo, you might be amused by this fan homage to that wonderful work. If you haven't, do that first. The Gruffalo is for children zero to five years old. Buffalo Tiger is for six year olds and up.

Both works are quite short and ultimately based on a Chinese folk tale about a fox and a tiger. Buffalo Tiger offers a solution to a special challenge of rhyming with "tiger" and adds a few nuances along the way. It invokes the world of insects, whereas The Gruffalo narrates from the world of larger animals.

In both tales there is a happy ending.

Here is how Buffalo Tiger starts: "An ant took a ramble by an empty nest, an antlion saw the ant and the ant looked best!" This work borrows the amazing structure and some wording from the original.
