The Tale of the Tiger Slippers

The Tale of the Tiger Slippers by Jan Brett is a beautiful book full of her trademark lush, highly colored paintings. It is a retelling of a classic Persian folktale called Abu Kassem’s Slippers. She has populated her tale with tigers and other exotic birds and beasts. The detail in the paintings is wonderful and the story is lovely. The tiger has a treasured pair of slippers his mother made that as they age don't always pass muster for special occasions. Eventually, his clever son figures out what to do with them to honor their maker.
