In this book, Tiger and Luna get pulled into the painting Surprised! or Tiger in a Tropical Storm by Henri Rousseau. But they must escape the jungle adventure before time runs out, otherwise they'll be trapped in the painting forever!
Praise for Danger! Tiger Crossing:
"Ten-year-old Tiger Brooks and his neighbor, Luna Lopez, get up-close and personal with Henri Rousseau’s “Tiger in a Tropical Storm” in this action-driven first book in the Fantastic Frame series." –Publishers Weekly
"Oliver keeps the plot itself snappy and peppy." -Kirkus
Tiger and Luna return to the fantastic frame, and this time they enter the famous dotted world of Georges Seurat's painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. After arriving on the shore of the pleasant scene, they dash through Paris, get captured by police, and encounter one misadventure after another. And of course, Tiger and Luna must return to the real world to avoid getting trapped in the painting before time runs out!
It's science project time in Ms. Adolf's class. This is good news and bad news for Hank-he loves science, but he hates the report part. So Hank turns to TV to take his mind off things. But when the program directory scrolls by too quickly for Hank to know what's on, he decides to take apart the cable box to try to slow down the crawl. Great! Now Hank has found the perfect science project! But what he wasn't counting on was his sister's pet iguana laying eighteen eggs in the disassembled cable box. How is Hank going to get out of this one?
Illustrated by Carol Heyer.
When Tiger and Luna get sucked into the fantastic frame this time, their destination is the diner depicted in Edward Hopper's famous painting Nighthawks. They explore the streets of New York in 1942 and ride the subway through the dark underground tunnels. It's another art adventure for Tiger and Luna, and as always, they must find their way back to the real world before it's too late—or remain stuck in the painting forever.
Georgia O'Keeffe's Red Clouds with the Pedernal serves as the backdrop for Tiger and Luna's ongoing mission that allows them to enter the worlds of famous paintings.
As they search for David, the boy who's been missing inside the frame for fifty years, they must traverse the desert and climb the mountain in New Mexico sacred to Native American tribes. But could the stories about spirits on the Pedernal be true? It's just one more detail for Tiger and Luna to keep in mind. But they must also remember the most important thing of all: get back to the real world before the end of the hour, or remain stuck in the painting forever!
