About this title

Synopsis:

From the author of the acclaimed Halibut Jackson comes a mold-breaking philosophical fairy tale for all ages. Part graphic novel—an extraordinary gift book to treasure. Imagine a disused living room in a grand house. In it is a tiger rug and a statue of a little girl. But is the tiger a real tiger, a fake, or a magical carpet? Is the little girl real but bewitched, or just a stone statue, and will she ever come to life? By turns comical and lugubrious, the tiger gives the little girl plenty of versions of the truth, but how will she decide what is true and will she be able to break free? A parable about outgrowing childhood and becoming what you want to be, this is a book for anyone who has ever felt "stuck" in their circumstances.
