  • Lindsi (Do You Dog-ear?)
    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.We loved this! Tiger vs. Nightmare was an amazing story about friendship and conquering your fears. My son has only recently started believing that monsters lurk in the dark corners of his room, so this book was very applicable to him right now.However, instead of Monster being something Tiger is afraid of, Monster is her friend that lives under...

    Man oh man, ladies and gents! This book is absolutely adorable! Filled with themes of best friends, bravery, conquering your fears, and nighttime terrors, this is such a special work that should be on all bookshelves. I think one of the greatest things about this novel is its fresh take on monsters under the bed, and what it means to face your own nightmares. This work could very easily become the new textbook on managing nightmares with children...
  • Ryan
    Amazing! Simply Amazing. Tiger has a best friend that everyone thinks is imaginary, but Tiger knows better. And his best friend is amazing. He keeps watch at night so Tiger gets a great night’s sleep. His most frightens all the nightmares away. But sometimes a nightmare is just too big, and needs more than one person to make it go away. The story is simple for even the youngest child, but it is the illustrations that make the story so great. Th...

    I read an ARC via NetGalley. This graphic novel for beginning readers is about a young tiger who works with the monster under her bed to scare away nightmares. The watercolor artwork was evocative, but may be a little scary for picture book readers. However, it is perfect for ages 5-8. Recommended for young readers dealing with nightmares. A quick and cute read.

  • Nicole(Newbookcats)
    Everyone experiences nightmares throughout one's life. Even when you are little, you can have a nightmare that causes you to wake up with cold sweats and screaming. I have always had the idea that I must go to a good college with a substantial amount of scholarship money so then my parents are not forced into debt. There are many ways around that ending though. There is financial aid. I can also apply for a job as well to help with the costs. But...

    Ever since Tiger and Monster met it was always the same routine: Monster would eat, they would play, and Monster would fend off nightmares while Tiger slept.

  • Kend
    Sometimes a monster is the only ally you need in facing down the dark. In Tiger vs. Nightmare, Tetri resurrects dreams of childhoods past, when the monsters under our beds were as exciting and interesting as they were scary, and when imaginary friends felt as real as our own parents. I found myself aching to pull out Calvin and Hobbes as I thumbed through the beautiful, sweet illustrations. Tiger and Monster's friendship is one of protector and...

  • Harker
    The watercolor style of Tiger vs. Nightmare is the first thing that caught my eye regarding this book. The colors are bright and rich with a smudgy quality that makes them attractive to a younger audience and interesting for any older readers that might be joining them.Story wise, this was a great one for friendship, imagination, bravery, and teamwork. Tiger's parents encourage her friendship/imagination toward Monster, the monster under her bed...

Every evening they play games and when it’s time for bed, Monster battles whatever nightmares enter the room so that Tiger can sleep in peace. One night, however, Monster encounters a nightmare that she can’t fend off. Together, Tiger and Monster try to figure out a way to defeat the nightmare. Tiger vs. Nightmare is a difficult book to cat...
  • Linda Patchett
    5 Stars is not enough for this book. It is a story of a little girl tiger and her imaginary friend who protects her from nightmares. To say more would deprive the new reader from experiencing the profound charm and wisdom of the story. Tetri's astounding water color and pencil illustrations are deeply moving. There are many sweet stories about helping our children overcome their fear of monsters at night. Tiger vs. Nightmare is one of a kind and ...

    I LOVED this book! Tiger (who lives in a cool futuristic world with all animal characters but awesome flying vehicles that I totally want to see more of) has a monster under her bed who fights off her nightmares each night...until he can't. This was just such a cool twist on a common theme - little kids everywhere are equally scared of the monster under the bed and their nightmares, but Tiger here has made her monster her best friend and since he...

    Adorable graphic novel about a young tiger and the monster living under her bed. Well-fed and loved by Tiger, Monster sits perched at the foot of her bed nightly to protect her friend from nightmares. When the nightmares grow too big for both friends, they team up to defeat their foe.Lovely washed watercolor feel to the graphics, an especially welcome contrast to the digital art of many graphic novels. Creative visualization of the nightmares, an...

    I had finished the book I was reading during my break at the library, so I didn't have anything to read to try to kill the time, so I found this cute and short little graphic novel in our juvenile section. It's so short and has such a small amount of words, it's surprising it isn't considered a picture book. But because it isn't, I'm counting it as a book I read because technically it's a graphic novel!! :-)This book was adorable and with a reall...
