Tiger Flower by Robert Vavra. il by Fleur Cowles.
Reynal & Company/William Morrow & Company: NY, 1969.
First published in Great Britain in 1968.

The most striking thing about the book is the illustrations. Bright, colorful, beautiful renderings of animals and landscapes.

The text is magical and poetic, though feeling from another time or out of time. Themes are imagination, peace, and acceptance. To me the strongest emphasis is on the comparison of two worlds. The usual is fierce and uncompromising. This new one may be odd, but acceptance is a key part of it. There are some 1960s concepts, but it is handled delicately and does not feel dated.
