Larry the Liger - The New Home


5.0 out of 5 stars A great read that children will enjoy, 11 Dec 2012

 I downloaded this free book after it was recommended to me by a friend to read when I next visit my niece. The book is an enjoyable read regardless of your age. The writer has created a phrase regarding the liger not being a lion or a tiger, cheetah or a panther which stays jn your mind long after you have finished reading the book. A great read that children wills enjoy.

This is a cute story and opened a series of questions for my children who had never heard of a Liger. We did some internet research and used this fictional book as a starting point to look up some amazing true facts.

 

5.0 out of 5 starsA real treat for your children,February 5, 2013

I downloaded this book in an attempt to keep my 5 year old nephew occupied during a train journey and I wasn't disappointed. The author has woven a beautiful story for young children and her simple, but effective writing style captured my nephew's full attention, so much so that I was asked to read it again and again.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone looking to entertain a small child and the absence of pictures as one reviewer mentioned is not an issue. Children have the finest imaginations and my nephew had no trouble making pictures in his head as a result of the authors well written prose.
 
 
5.0 out of 5 starsLarry the Liger-a lovely read., 7 Feb 2013
I really enjoyed reading about Larry the Liger-and finding out exactly what a liger is! This is written in a clear, straightforward way and tells the story of Larry the baby liger who was abandoned by his creator, and his experiences of finding a warm and loving home. The repetition of some of the phrases throughout the story provide the potential for participation by the younger listener to the tale. I intend to share this story with my 5 year old son, but anticipate that older, independent readers would also enjoy meeting Larry.

A lovely story for parents and children alike. Larry is an instantly lovable character. I'm looking forward to reading other books in the same series.

 

Larry the Liger - The New Friend

 

5.0 out of 5 starsLarry the Liger - The New Friend Great chapter book!, February 14, 2013

The illustrations on the cover were fantastic! The rest of the book was wonderfully illustrated by the text. This is an easy reader. The story lightly touched on negativity of being selfish and listening to gossip. It leaned toward the positive in being brave, loyal, and not prejudging. Also, bought out that serving others develops friendships. Also sometimes those we trust will be led to falsely accuse. Great story for discussion and reading groups.

Larry is a nice, caring, and a cool liger! He has a friend that teaches people to be mean and snooty. I recommend this book to kids and everyone who is loving.
 
 

5.0 out of 5 starsWarm, charming, and skillfully written ..., February 25, 2013

What a warm, charming, and skillfully written children’s story about fitting in and finding new friends! Larry the Liger is a newcomer to his household and struggles to find his place in it. It is a situation with which most children will relate whether it pertains to home life, school, playgroups, or recreational activities. What I really appreciate about the book is that the tone is not overly elementary or condescending but written in a way to engage the target and provoke thought and further investigation. I have always had a fascination with children’s books and someday hope to write one myself. I only hope I can create the lovely balance of simplicity and cleverness of this book that held my interest to the very end. What a fabulous introduction to a series that is sure to become a classic! 
 
 
 
5.0 out of 5 starsA lovely book that was a pleasure to read, 25 Mar 2013
This is a lovely book to read with children. It's a simple story that keeps the reader engaged the whole time whilst teaching children the importance of not judging as things are not always as they seem.

A very cute book for a young reader. I don't have a young reader with me, but I think any small child would enjoy it whether they were the reader or if they were being read to.
 
 
Larry the Liger - the Easter Liger
 
 
5.0 out of 5 starsCharming, 8 April 2013
Charming, charming, charming, charming! Even now, I'm smiling just thinking about this sweet story. It's absolutely adorable!
Told in a very English voice, the adventure begins with Larry meeting an unusual animal with long ears and a white fluffy tail that he had spied hiding in a hedge. He learns that his new friend, Rory, is called a rabbit and is an escapee from the Easter Market Farmyard, where loud children covered in sticky chocolate pick him up and pet him, dirtying with his beautiful, soft fur. Larry is justly horrified. When Rory is captured and returned to the dreadful Easter Market Farmyard, Larry plots a rescue.
This is a perfect book to read with a young child, as I'm sure the other Larry the Liger books are, too. In fact, as I was reading this story-- wearing that big smile-- I'd stop periodically to share funny excerpts with my family. Though it is a charming tale (did I mention it's charming?), like any quality children's literature, there is a lesson. In this particular story, the lesson is tolerance and appreciating the differences between us all.
Goes without saying, I highly recommend Larry the Liger. This series will be a great addition to your child's bookshelf.

Another fab Larry the Liger story. I purchased this story to read to my grandchildren but have read it alone and thoroughly enjoyed it even at my age! I can't wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 starsSuper Cute With a Good Lesson, April 18, 2013 
This is an adorable story for young readers about anger and forgiveness sure to warm even the coldest heart. Little Larry the liger is tired of being teased by the mean cat Chloe--who ends up missing. It is up to Larry and his friends to find her. A sweeter story was never written to teach children how to be kind. This book takes place in Prague and in the Prague Zoo, where I have recently spent the day. It's a wonderful zoo where families can have a great time, and I was surprised and pleased to find it was the setting for the story. Authors Phillips and Wilson do a great job of reflecting the happy atmosphere of the zoo. I highly recommend this book.
 
 
 
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Story for Children to Realize Friendship often Needs Help, April 19, 2013
I enjoyed this story. Great one to share with children struggling with understanding friendship is something they need to work at. It dealt with understanding you can be a friend to someone who has not shown friendship yet to you. It also had the idea of understanding appreciation for differences. The owl, the snake and a "Liger" all have different strengths and could work together for an unappreciative friend, the cat. Larry the Liger is certainly lovable and I look forward to his next adventure.
 
 
 
4.0 out of 5 starsLarry the Liger - The Lost Friend (Larry the Liger Series), April 19, 2013
"Be careful what you wish for" boy how many times have I heard that in my life. This is a magnificent story to teach a lesson on the value of friendships. I highly recommend it. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is I wish there had been more illustrations but loved it just the same.
 
  
 
5.0 out of 5 starsCharming, 21 April 2013
The story of a (slightly mean) missing cat, this is a lovely introduction to eReading for little ones. I'd suggest it for age 4-6, but that is obviously dependant on the child. This is well illustrated, simply written and ideal for bedtimes which call for exploration of zoos. Larry is a loveable main character.
 
 
 
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Message for Children and Adults - Middle-Grade Chapter Book, April 28, 2013
Larry the Liger - The Lost Friend - is a fantastic story. Born on a cold snowy night in a private zoo of a mad professor, Larry's mother was a Tiger and his father a Lion. The first line of this book immediately shows me Larry is a mixed breed, guaranteed to have challenges in his life. The eccentric scientist abandons Larry in a telephone box outside the Prague Zoo.
For the most part, Larry enjoys his life at the zoo and has many friends. Enter Chloe the cat, who teases Larry about his heritage, eats his food and is mean to him. Of course, this upsets Larry, who wants to get along. He confronts Chloe, who refuses to accept responsibility. Larry finally loses his temper with Chloe, who runs away. Ultimately, Larry feels sad when he cannot find Chloe. Despite his anger, Larry and his friends search for Chloe. A sweet story about adversity, compassion, friendship and forgiveness.
