In this full colour picturebook, it's Sam's fifth birthday. It's almost time for the party to begin when the doorbell rings. Sam opens the door. A tiger is there. He looks pretty big and he seems to be hungry. His teeth are long and extremely sharp.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM! I'VE COME TO EAT YOU UP!" he cries.

"...This fantasy tale is told with humour and shows how a child can overcome fears. The text is repetitive in places, a feature children enjoy. The illustrations are generous with lots of action and unusual detail. A good gift for four-to-five-year-olds."
