School Library Journal Review

Zachary always has fun with his parents, and does not like it when they go out without him. To get him used to other children, Mr. and Mrs. Tiger invite cousin Alfie to go along on their camping trip. Both young tigers are strong willed and used to having their own way. When the cliff Zachary chooses to climb proves to be too steep, he finds shelter in a cave; there he finds Alfie huddled and unable to find his way out. The two help one another and realize the benefits of having a friend. The cubs are endearing, executed in ink and watercolor-wash cartoons reminiscent of those by James Stevenson, including the dialogue balloons. The book may be useful for bibliotherapy, but Cohen's Will I Have a Friend? (Macmillan, 1967) will do more to allay children's fears of new situations. --Micki S.
