The second Mr. Tiger and Betsy story is just as charming and magical as the first. Pirates are on their way to the island left off the map, and so is a tiny sea dragon egg—exciting!! I especially like that bad guys are dealt with in a gentle non-punitive way, so this series continues to be a perfect family read aloud.
Award-winning author Sally Gardner delivers another whimsical tale about the daughter of a mermaid and an ice cream maker, a mysterious talking tiger, and a search for a sea dragon's magical underwater orchard in this second book in the Mr. Tiger series.
From a magical world of well-dressed animals, talking toads, and bossy princesses comes a fresh tale of Mr. Tiger, Betsy K. Glory, and a wicked pirate in search of golden apples. A rare egg has gone missing and a very unhappy sea dragon wants it back. It's time for Mr. Tiger, Betsy, and the Gongalongs to set sail on their second adventure.
