Whom should a lonely tiger play with if all his fellow tigers have disappeared?
In the tug of war of living paces between humans and animals, where will the creatures of the wild of if more forests are cut?
One Lonely Tiger depicts this urgent threat of extinction and asks the pressing question. Are our trees, wild animals, birds and insects safe? Gorgeously illustration and thoroughly narrated, this book sensitizes young readers to the pathos and loneliness of wildlife and the ecological crisis we face

This book touches a very important topic of preserving our forests and wildlife. The story is very simple with a great message. I liked how the story has been beautifully weaved in poetic rhyming lines. It was fun reading it to my little girl.
What happens when there’s a lonely tiger? Lonely because he has no one to be with, play with? What does he do? play with other animals and trees? But what if there are no trees also now?
The book touches a very important topic of the extinction of wildlife and deforestation. The book is crafted really poetically with rhyming lines.
My little girls got really intrigued listening to the story as started reading. The connect with the planets and the space was really interesting for her as she was learning the solar system in school a few days ago.
However, making her understand the issue of deforestation was a little difficult for me initially. But I used the current environmental issue to make her understand. Maybe in a few years when she understands the environmental issues herself, she would relate to the story better.
I liked the illustration of the story and the concept a lot.
Your mission to read a story to your child is successful if he/she pics the book herself the next time to read. So I would say this book was able to do that.
