Book description

A 2018 Times Book of the Year. An enchanting fairytale about Mr Tiger, and his troupe of acrobats, Betsy K Glory, the daughter of a mermaid and an ice-cream maker, from bestselling author Sally Gardner and illustrated by Nick Maland. 'Tigers have their secrets and their whiskers, their tails and their tales.' Sally Gardner's enchanting new series, illustrated by Nick Maland, is a fairytale full of traditional ingredients. When Betsy K Glory, the daughter of a mermaid and an ice-cream maker, meets the mysterious Mr Tiger they have a giant challenge: a moon to turn blue, berries to collect and wishable-delicious ice cream to create. The sort that makes wishes come true. With Mr Tiger and his troupe of Gongalong circus acrobats, a toad under a spell, a lonely giant, and Mum and Dad, Betsy sets off on her quest. The hardback edition of this book is printed in blue ink in Dyslexie, a font specially designed to make reading easier - and more fun. Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Blue Moon made the 2018 Books of the Year round-ups in The Times, the Telegraph, Evening Standard, the Scotsman and Big Issue. 'A story surreal as any dream ... The book delights in its whimsicality, and readers should too' Financial Times. 'Sally's story of Betsy's adventures with the mysterious Mr Tiger is a mixture of modern and classic - a fairy tale for the present day' Computer Arts. 'The mission Betsy and Mr Tiger take on includes many delicious elements - a blue moon, a blushing berry collection, a wish-granting ice-cream. But even more alluring is Gardner's unique prose, full of unusual metaphors and strange ideas, such as an over-worked alphabet and a pyjama-clad sun' Big Issue, Books of the Year. 'This dyslexia-friendly title, full of enchanting illustrations from Nick Maland, is a very playful read' Scotsman, Books of the Year. 'Sally Gardner usually writes for older children, but Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Blue Moon is for smaller readers, about an intrepid little girl who gets the moon to turn blue and give everyone wishes, courtesy of a gentleman tiger. Dyslexia friendly' Evening Standard, Books of the Year. 'Readers will enjoy the fast-moving plot and the cast of intriguing characters. Nick Maland's attractive illustrations help bring the story to life ... Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Blue Moon is the first in what is likely to be a popular series' The School Librarian. 'I loved this story and the amazing pictures' Poppy Symonds (11). 'This was my first time reading a book in blue print. The colour, font and illustrations made it enjoyabl
