Growing up at the foot of Mount Everest, a Sherpa boy named Tenzing Norgay dreamed about one day being the first to climb the giant in his backyard For years he practiced, carrying loads of rocks in his backpack to grow stronger, prowling the mountain s lower levels later, carrying loads of equipment for other adventurers, but always, always, wanting to climb himself.ButGrowing up at the foot of Mount Everest, a Sherpa boy named Tenzing Norgay dreamed about one day being the first to climb the giant in his backyard For years he practiced, carrying loads of rocks in his backpack to grow stronger, prowling the mountain s lower levels later, carrying loads of equipment for other adventurers, but always, always, wanting to climb himself.But his dream never seemed possible until he met Edmund Hillary, a New Zealand beekeeper who shared Tenzing s dream By working together every step of the way, two men from entirely different backgrounds climbed into the clouds, to the peak of Mount Everest However, as the years passed, only Hilary s name lived on in the history books while, in the west, Norgay s was mostly forgotten.In Tiger of the Snows, Robert Burleigh introduces young readers to one of the Far East s greatest heroes and tells the long neglected story of a litle boy with an unimaginable dream, who refused to be daunted by the world s most daunting mountain, and who came to be known as the tiger of the snows Caldecott winner Ed Young brings Everest to life with hauntingly, subtly beautiful animal imageries and resplendent colors, capturing the breathtaking grandeur and life force of the mountain the Nepalese call Mother Goddess of the Earth.

Comments Tiger of the Snows: Tenzing Norgay: The Boy Whose Dream Was Everest

  • Jennifer

    The Everest ascent from the viewpoint of Tenzing Norgay rather than Edmund Hillary. Both poems and art focus on Norgay; add to that the fact that this is both poetry and nonfiction and you've got a very good classroom choice.

    Includes an Afterword.

    3.5 starsVery interesting story of Tenzing Norgay a Sherpa who was with Edmund Hillary on the First recorded assent to the very top Everest!Done in poem form, I stilled liked it. Sometimes with poems you are just like "get to the point already" but this was well done and interesting! The pictures are okay, Ed Young has illustrations I like better! I like historical stuff, this was informative . I think 5th Grader to 7th Graders might appreciate this more!

    A story about Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa boy who climbed Mount Everest with Edmund Hillary. Text is poetic and illustrations were rendered in pastels.I liked the way that pastels made the images a little hazy which gives readers the kind of views the two climbers might've had ascending the mountain. An author's note follows the story.


  • Cara Stone

    This book's text is clearly directed at those who appreciate or are studying poetry. Not for younger readers, the vocabulary and poetic devices are geared for middle school and above. The use of pastels really helps convey the snowy setting of the book.


  • Lily Lamb

  • Andrea Labonte
