The Tiger Rising

Kate DiCamillo

A Nationwide Ebook Award finalist by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo. Strolling by means of the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is shocked to come across a tiger—a real-life, very giant tiger—pacing backwards and forwards in a cage. What’s extra, on the identical extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a woman who reveals her emotions as readily as Rob hides his. As they study to belief one another, and in the end, to be pals, Rob and Sistine show that some issues—like recollections, and heartache, and tigers—can’t be locked up without end. That includes a brand new cowl illustration by Stephen Walton and an excerpt of Kate DiCamillo’s latest novel, Raymie Nightingale.
