One magical friendship. One roaring adventure.

The magical tale of a bold young chimney sweep and a remarkable tiger, a dangerously hypnotic ruby and a mystical land found across an ocean and through a storm. Perfect for fans of The Girl of Ink and Stars and Pax.

Fly never meant to end up in a cage with a man-eating tiger. And though she's no princess, when the tiger bows to her, she can't help vowing to free him and return him home.

But the bird-filled jungles and cloud-topped mountains of the tiger's homeland are an ocean away. And not everyone wants the tiger to return.

With dark and dangerous forces working against them, will Fly be able to fulfil her promises, keep them both alive and - just maybe - become the queen her tiger knows her to be?


Could not deny Tiger Heart is a fantastic, fun read and I love following Fly and her best friend's adventure. Reading this really makes me want a magical friend too. It sounds fun. 

Anyway, the plot story is engaging and it is a fast-paced which I read in the span of three days. I like Fly. She is an amazing, brave young girl in which she is determined to help to save all the animals that have been captured by the evil guy. Also, I love her friendship with her magical friend; Tiger. Tiger is really loyal and incredible. Can I have him as a pet too? I guess not since I have 4 cute, naughty cats and I love them all. 

Overall, I do enjoy reading Tiger Heart, love the setting, the story, the surprises, the adventure however it may not really reach my heart that much. No, it is not bad. It just might not really work with me but I'm sure it works magically to you and the kids.

The book is available at all good bookstores.
