Synopsis: An extraordinary new novel of friendship by Kate DiCamillo, author of the celebrated debut novel BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE.
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.
About the Author:
Kate DiCamillo says of THE TIGER RISING, "Rob Horton first showed
up in a short story I was writing. I finished the story, but apparently
Rob wasn?t finished with me. He hung around for weeks afterward, haunting the other stories I was working on. Finally, I said to him, ?What in the world do you want?? And he said, ?I know where there?s
a tiger.? Like Sistine, I said one word back to him, ?Where?? THE TIGER
RISING is how Rob Horton answered me."
