A tiger carries a dining room chair on her back. But why? Where is she going? With just one word per page, in lush, color-rich landscapes, we learn about the features that make up our world: an archipelago, a dune, an isthmus, a lagoon. Across them all, the tiger roams. This enigmatic investigation of our world's most beautiful places from bestselling author Dave Eggers is beautifully illustrated by debut artist Angel Chang.

Review quote

"An artistic envisioning of a list poem, of sorts, about place. Repeated perusals will have readers proclaiming it's grrrrr-eat."-- Kirkus Reviews, Starred review "Dave Eggers's stunning picture book introduces the youngest readers to words that identify the natural world's wonders."-- Shelf Awareness, starred review "Eggers (What Can a Citizen Do?) and newcomer Chang imagine a wild world emptied of humans, their buildings, their vehicles, and their trash-landscapes that make [a] tiger's expedition gloriously free and startlingly beautiful."--Publishers Weekly "[S]tunning artwork makes a case for environmentalism and will have readers strapping on a chair and heading out in search of our planet's diverse and wondrous beauty."-- Booklist, starred review "A white tiger transports a yellow dining room chair on a fantastic voyage across varied landscapes. Each spread features a single topographic designation. The tiger swims, climbs, hikes, rows, and meanders his way across a tundra, estuary, atoll, cloud forest, and more. The wonderful illustrations will excite viewers about the natural world."--School Library Journal
