INCLUDES SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED LINE DRAWINGS Little Tiger is not like other tigers. Not content to spend her days alone, roaming the snow forests of Siberia hunting prey, she prefers instead to ponder the ways of the world. One day, eager to discover her own place within it, she sets out on a remarkable journey to discover the secret of life, and to meet the creatures she has heard most about: humans. A moving tale of bravery and spirit, The Tiger and the Acrobat is a celebration of the power of friendship, and a testament to the courage it takes to be true to ourselves. 'This book is a beaut.' Cecelia Ahern, author of P.S. I Love You

'This book is a beaut.' * Cecelia Ahern, author of <i>P.S. I Love You</i> * 'Enhanced by enchanting pencil illustrations, best-selling Italian writer Tamaro's beguiling parable is a paean to the power of friendship and a testament to the resiliency of the individual spirit, whatever form the body takes.' * <i>Booklist</i> * 'Susanna Tamaro's prose is soft and welcoming while still indulging in the fantastical, which illuminates and enlivens this testament to the beauty and power of nature and innocence.' * <i>World Literature Today</i> * 'Slim but powerful, The Tiger and the Acrobat is rich with reflections on purpose and meditations on what it means to be oneself.' * <i>Shelf Awareness</i> * 'Joyful and profound.' * Il Piccolo * 'Clear, razor-sharp prose.' * Corriere della Sera * 'A poetic and luminous modern fairy tale, imbued with love, tenderness, passion for ode to the human heart.' * Famiglia Cristina * 'Tamaro leads us by the hand to the centre of the world, passing through hope and the essence of happiness.' * Eco di Bergamo * 'A story that rotates around the meaning of freedom.' * Gazzetta del sud *
