I’ve read Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo and now I’ve watched the movie. Here are my thoughts.
Kate DiCamillo is one of my all-time favorite children’s book authors, so I was super excited to see they were making a movie adaptation of her book, The Tiger Rising. The book is one of her earlier works and, similar to Because of Winn Dixie, centers around a small town of characters who are dealing with loss and grief.
The Tiger Rising is a short one, so I wasn’t sure how well it would be conveyed as a full-length movie. However, it was a great adaptation of the book and I was very impressed with how well the movie stuck to the tone and feel of the book and how beautiful the story was told.
I also loved the cast, especially Queen Latifah as Willie May, and they all gave life to the book even better than I could have imagined. Overall, this was a great one, and coming from someone who always claims the book is better, I must say this one is almost the book page by page, so if you are someone who loved the book version, I really think you’ll enjoy watching this version, too.
