Children's picture book by Ruth Helm about a man who got tired before finishing mowing his lawn for seventeen years. As a result a very fine jungle had developed and a tiger came to live in the jungle behind his house! This is a very funny story and is told in a the same serious style that delighted boys and girls who enjoyed the authors previous work.
