Tigeropolis – Caught In The Trap – AD sent for review and giveaway

It’s no big secret that my nine-year old son and I love visiting wildlife parks and zoos.  Whilst my son’s favourite is the giraffe, I’ve had a love affair with big cats, and specifically tigers, since I was his age.  So I’m not sure who was more eager to read the latest book to be released by R D Dikstra.  Tigeropolis – Caught In The Trap is the third book in the series and was published through Belle Media earlier this week.

Tigeropolis - Caught In The Trap

The book is aimed at children aged seven to eleven-year olds, so perfect for my son in Year Four. As I’ve already mentioned, Tigeropolis – Caught In The Trap is the third book in this series, but it holds up well as a stand alone read too.

I always thinks it helps children to visualise the world a story is told within, when a map is included at the start of a book, and of course my son was sold as soon as he saw the Delbai and North Railway line featured in the Tigeropolis world!

Tigeropolis - Caught In The Trap

Tigeropolis is a found in the foothills of the Himalayas, and the nature reserve is home to a family of rather unusual tigers.  The tigers are vegetarian!  Having recently seen the tiger cubs at Whipsnade Zoo, my son found this idea really funny.  We meet tiger cubs Bittu and Matti, their mother Tala and Uncle Raj in this latest adventure.

The tigers lead a rather sedate life in Tigeropolis until they discover that poachers have returned to the forest and that they are all in danger.  Bittu narrowly escapes being captured and the cubs raise the alarm.  They should be able to rely on the Forest Guards, Forest Office Mistry and his assistant Akash to rid their home of these criminals, but the rangers aren’t really up to the task.  They’d rather stay safe and take life easy.

The family of tigers realise they will have to take matters into their own hands and start searching out the traps that have been laid by the gang.  Their fears grow when they watch a report on the Bollywood Broadcasting Corporation about other tigers that the poachers had tried to capture fairly close by.

Tigeropolis - Caught In The Trap

The tigers work with the vultures to keep a look out for strangers approaching Tigeropolis and Bittu starts perfecting his spycraft as the animals plan their next move.  I won’t ruin the rest of the storyline of Tigeropolis – Caught In The Trap, but I will say that elephant poo might feature somewhere in the plan.  The story is funny and easy for children to read.

We’ve both enjoyed reading this book, and anything that helps raise awareness in children about the importance of animal conservation, can only be a good thing in my opinion.  For more information on this and other books in the series pop over to the Tigeropolis website.
