While Marco Fennerty is delivering papers in New Orleans' French Quarter, he comes upon a Royal Bengal tiger. The bright eleven-year-old, son of a policeman, works out a means of communicating with the tiger, who lets the boy know he is very unhappy with his set-up. Convinced that someone will shoot the tiger if he stays in New Orleans, Marco determines to get his friend back to India. However, once started on this project, the boy runs into a series of complications. By the time he reaches a thrilling climax to his quest, Marco has learned some valuable lessons about life - and tigers! The might-be-true action of this sensitive, whimsical, witty book has all the unique color and excitement of what has been called "America's most interesting city," including Carnival time. Lorence Bjorklund's delightful drawings contribute greatly to this effect.
