Product Description

Four Questions to Make You Smile Again

Tiger-Tiger, Is It True? is a story about a little tiger who thinks that his whole world is falling apart: his parents don’t love him, his friends have abandoned him, and life is unfair. But a wise turtle asks him four questions, and everything changes. He realizes that all his problems are not caused by things, but by his thoughts about things; and that when he questions his thoughts, life becomes wonderful again.

In Byron Katie's notes she encourages dialog between the reader and the child:

...The Work, which forms the basis of this story, is a way to identify and question the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world.  It is a way to find peace with yourself and with the world.  The old, the young, the sick, and well, the educated, the uneducated, anyone with an open mind can do this Work.

Those of you who are interested in learning how to do The Work, yourselves or with your children, will find everything you need to know in my book Loving What Is, or on y website, www.thework.com

Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to change the world so that they can be happy.  This hasn't ever worked, because it approaches the problem backward.  What The Work gives us is a way to change the projector―mind―rather than the projected.  It’s like when there’s a piece of lint on the projector’s lens.  We think there’s a flaw on the screen, and we try to change this person and that person, whoever the flaw appears to be on next.  But it’s futile to try to change the projected images.  Once we realize where the link is, we can clear the lens itself.  This is the end of suffering, and the beginning of a little joy in paradise.

This is a heartwarming story with a powerful message that can transform the lives of even very young children. Byron Katie’s wisdom-filled words and Hans Wilhelm’s vivid, magical illustrations combine to make a book that will become one of the classics of children’s literature.

If you have a child that is last to be picked for sports, seems to think the world is a horrible place, thinks he/she has no friends, or that nobody cares, this is the book that will start a positive dialog and 'turn' things around.

Byron Katie (she was born Byron Kathleen Reid, and everyone calls her Katie) discovered inquiry in 1986. Everything in this book comes from The Work of Byron Katie, her remarkable method for finding happiness and freedom. Katie has been traveling around the world for more than a dozen years teaching The Work directly to hundreds of thousands of people. In addition, she has introduced The Work into business settings, universities, schools, churches, prisons, and hospitals. Her website is www.thework.com, where you will find her schedule, articles about her, registration forms, and basic information about The Work.

With over 42 million books in print, Hans Wilhelm is one of America’s foremost authors/illustrators of children’s books. Many of his 200 books have been translated into 20 languages and have become successful animated television series that are enjoyed by children all over the world. His books have won numerous international awards and prizes.

  1. Great book! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2012

    I've been using Byron Katie's work for a couple of years now. I use it for myself and my clients (I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist). This book allows me to use it with children as well. It's well written and the pictures are captivating. My 6 year old son really enjoyed it and asked to have it read to him again the next night. Now that he understands the concept of questioning his thoughts I can talk to him about it when he comes home upset from school or a play date. Even at this young age he is learning that suffering is a choice and that using "inquiry" can set him free from the thoughts that are causing his suffering.

  2. not just for kids! 5 Star Review

    This is a wonderful little gem. I got it for my youngest grandchild and after reading it I had to get one for all of them -even the oldest. It is a wonderful story about a little tiger who feels his world is falling apart. When a wise owl asks him 4 simple questions he realizes his thoughts cause his problems. I think it is great book that even adults will find very valuable.

  3. Wonderful children's book - and for adults, too! 5 Star Review

    The message here is that we choose how we want to feel - a very good lesson for anyone, not just children. No one is angry, sad, happy, depressed, excited, anxious - without his or her permission. A profound message with a light-hearted delivery - what could be better?
