Leo couldn't do anything right. He couldn't read or write. He couldn't draw. And he was a sloppy eater. Every day and every night Leo's father watched him for signs of blooming. "Are you sure Leo's a bloomer?" asked Leo's father. "Patience," said Leo's mother. Then one day, in his own good time-Leo bloomed! This heartwarming story of how a little tiger named Leo bloomed is told by best-selling author Robert Kraus, and is accompanied by the wonderfully bold illustrations of Jose Aruego. These two have also, with Ariane Dewey, collaborated on LITTLE LOUIE THE BABY BLOOMER, the sequel to this well-loved story.
