Love Volume 1: The Tiger Federico Bertolucci

What you have here is a tale of a day in a tiger's life that is gloriously illustrated.  I love tigers and I enjoy graphic novels, so this was a perfect read for me.

Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 10th, so make a note to grab it then.

This is true nature, not a fairy tale.  Be prepared for death.  The tiger is hungry and looking for food.  He's not having much luck.  His prey escapes him, monkeys taunt him, jaguars attack him and he ends up in a fight with an elephant.  He finds food but that's going to cause him trouble, too, in time.

All these animals are shown in graphic perfection and the detail in the pictures really takes you into the jungle.  Mr. Bertolucci also includes a section at the back to show you how his illustrations start.

I enjoyed every page of this graphic novel.  There are no words and yet the story pulls you in.  Take a look at it; I bet you'll leave with it.
