When bread is baked, the crust sometimes breaks open and looks as though it has been clawed. Readers are told that this is in honor of Belisario, a bread-making, storytelling tiger. This is a cautiooonary tale in which children teach adults how important it is to look beyond what is obvious. Buring one of his storytelling sessions, Belisario chooses not to war a costume and, for the first time, the townspeople see him in just his stripes and realize that he is a tiger. Forbidden to enter the bakery and sad because Belisario is arreted and put behind bars, the youngsters dress as tigers and ask their parents, "Are we still your children?" With that, the adults release the creature and ask his forgiveness. Reminiscent of the books of Maira Kalman, this is an imaginative and enjoyable story with distinctive illustrations.
