The Tyger, Lion, Wolf and a Boy

My Dad was presented with ‘The Jungle Book’ as a reward for becoming Top Boy at his school on his first teenage year.

I also became Head Boy of my school at around the same age.

It’s fair to say he loved this book and the musical animation of the story.  Interestingly his favourite poem was ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake – no coincidence.

A copy of that poem, in artistic form, is here to read:

Here is a photograph of my Dad’s originally presented ‘The Jungle Book’ by Rudyard Kipling:

Here is the front cover of a school project I produced in the year I also became a teenager:

Practice makes perfect.
