Publisher Description

National Book Award finalist by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo. Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger—a real-life, very large tiger—pacing back and forth in a cage. What’s more, on the same extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other, and ultimately, to be friends, Rob and Sistine prove that some things—like memories, and heartache, and tigers—can’t be locked up forever. Featuring a new cover illustration by Stephen Walton and an excerpt of Kate DiCamillo's newest novel, Raymie Nightingale.

💖💖🎉🎉😭😝😝😝SO BEAUTIFUL 😭😭😭💖💖💖🎉🎉🎉😝😝😝

This book is so great my 4th grade teacher gave us copies to read it together and the book is nice, except for when the tiger got shot. It is way better than Where The Red Fern Grows. Me and my classmates couldn’t stop crying 😭. I want it for my birthday 🥳!

Such a wonderful book ♥️♥️♥️

This is one of my favorite Kate Dicamillo books. It talks about grief, loss, friendship and more. I first read this book in 4th grade and I still do. I recommend it to people who have a hard time dealing with grief or loss.
