    1 thought on “Tom the Tamer

    1. I thought this was a little strange, but fun picture book about a zoophobic father and his son who is set on curing him I don t think kids will see the strangeness, but they will enjoy the crazy antics of the son, Tom.

    2. Not a huge fan of the story itself, but the illustrations were quite good Kept my daughters attention but wasn t my fav.

    3. Tom is a talented boy who has a truly amazing gift he can tame any kind of animal he wants to do tricks He creates a trampoline for the snails in the garden, who love to jump on it The squirrels in the trees are having fun on the trapezes Tom made for them as they swing by as if they were apart of a circus act flipping about.The problem is that no matter how creative Tom is in the development of activities for his animal friends, his father refuses to come outside and look at any of his new inve [...]

    4. Tom may be able to train snails to jump on a trampoline and squirrels to swing from trapezes in the trees, but he can t convince his father to go outdoors His dad is too frightened of all of the animals out there So Tom sets out with a plan to bring the animals in to his father He starts by heading to the local pet store and buying a polar bear He trains the polar bear in the park and by that evening, the polar bear is pretending to be their new furry white chair in the house Tom s father loves [...]

    5. This was a really cute book about a boy Tom whose father is too scared of animals and nature to play with him outside Tom is a master at taming animals, so he tricks his father by taming animals so well that they seem like furniture and his father sits on them When the truth is revealed, Tom s father runs outside and realizes what he s been missing.There were some pretty big assumptions that I found annoying but kids probably wouldn t notice For instance, where was Tom getting the money to buy t [...]

    6. I m having a hard time deciding how many stars to rank this book I m probably thinking too much like an adult I could probably be persauded with some younger minds Next read I ll bring in the young ones and I m pretty sure their responses will be full of appreciation and cheer for the spectacular formula Tom utilizes Now if my curtains, chair, and various pieces of furniture potentially have the same fate, my youngin will figure how to make it happenor at the very least spend some time trying to [...]

    7. I wasn t expecting this story to turn out as it did Tom s father is afraid of animalsl animalseven the tiniest little butterfly Tom sets out to change his father s view in an inventive and funny way By the time the polar bear agrees to become the father s new armchair, I was hooked The illustrations are also a delight I think children will have a great time seeing the inventive ways Tom had tamed his many animal friends A nice little lesson in giving something a chance

    8. Silly crazy story of a young boy who wants his father to venture outside to see some of the small circus fun he has created for the neighborhood creatures His hypochondriac dad is not having it though and Tom will have to get creative and bring the circus to him For a man that is terrified of butterflies this can prove be a bit much.

    9. The illustrations in this book are out of this world What a cute story about a son teaching his Dad to overcome a fear instead of the reverse This is definitely going to a friend with children
