KIRKUS REVIEW

Fuzzy was a tiger cub, and for one little boy, the perfect pet, until he starts to grow. He ""follows him to school one day"" and causes quite a commotion. A letter from an uncle in India dictates the sad but essential solution -- ""A grownup tiger will never be happy except in the jungle"" -- so off Fuzzy goes to be replaced by Fuzzy Jr., a new cub from India. The pictures here are more intriguing than the text, especially the one of teacher fainting at the sight of Fuzzy. But even they are not exceptional. A pleasant blue and orange story.
