Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

In an unnamed country, a child of unspecified age and gender, nicknamed Tiger, flees the ravages of war with the help of aid-worker parents, a wise and compassionate guide, a burro, and a fish that Tiger has rescued from a drying puddle. Danger lurks around every bend--soldiers, bandits, inhospitable terrain, lack of food and water. Despite the bleakness of the story, Matthews allows us into a world that can yet be saved by kindness. Jenna Lamia's narration shines. Her subtle delivery perfectly captures the anguish and terror of Tiger’s situation. The absence of overdramatization enhances the power of this quiet story of bravery and growth born of desperate situations. S.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
