    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...

    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.

    Lovely story about nightmares, monsters under the bed, and courage. Tiger is supposed to be a courageous animal, but this little one is afraid of nightmares. With the help of her friend monster, they fight the nightmares. Until one day she is courageous enough to face her own mind and get rid of the nightmares for real. The art is gorgeous!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I received this as an ARC from the publisher. I loved this. Opening with Tiger having a monster under her bed. The catch is that the Monster is her friend who protects her from nightmares. Until one day they can't protect her from one. The artwork for the book perfectly conveys that feeling you get when you have a nightmare. And the triumph of beating it. This book is perfect for that kid who has nightmares or is afraid of the monster under their...

    Tiger is friends with a monster. They play and eat together. Monster protects Tiger from nightmares, but one day monster isn't strong enough! Can Tiger and Monster work together to defeat it?This felt more like a children's book than a graphic novel, but I did love it. The art is ADORABLE and the story is quaint. It's a pretty straight forward message and I can see a lot of kids at my library liking this.

    A perectly predictable little book for young readers about facing nightmares. I enjoyed the depiction of the nightmare creature more than I enjoyed the tiger family and the monster, and I think its depiction will resonate with kids under six.I recommend it for parents looking for an uncomplicated bedtime story to read to their kids.

    We love this new book! A great child’s graphic novel that shows you can empower yourself, and how friends can strengthen us. The theme is combating nightmares, but the idea can go so much further. The illustrations are fantastic, and we really enjoyed this as a bedtime read. My little one wants to draw/write her own books now.

    I loved this! The illustrations are wonderful. The characters are adorable and should appeal to young kids. The nightmare is pretty scary looking as it should be, but I love how Tiger and her monster work together to figure out how to beat it. I love the flying cars. Emily Tetri has created a fun world here.
