ABOUT THE BOOKTigers don’t talk (well, at least not in ‘people’ language). Tigers don’t have names either. But then T-Cub is a very special tiger cub and he wants to tell you his story. It’s about his life in a forest in India and his animal friends (and foes) including monkeys, peacocks and elephants.
T-Cub is naughty, curious, lovable and brave (and sometimes scared too!). He is living the good life of a wild tiger—prowling the forest, loved by his Ma, teased by his sister. He is learning the ways of the jungle, to hunt, to be a tiger… And then one day his mother vanishes and T-Cub learns another lesson—it isn’t easy being a tiger.
- A heart-warming story of T-Cub, an adorable tiger cub, who tells us what it is like to live and grow up in the forest. The story, which is a first-person narrative by T-Cub, successfully transports readers into the magical world of the forests and wild animals without glossing over serious issues like poaching, deforestation, habitat loss and extinction.
- The mix of fiction and non-fiction ensures that kids across the age-groups of 6-10 years will engage with the book in different ways.
- Maya Ramaswamy’s exquisite realistic illustrations will endear readers to T-Cub, his sister and their mother even more. The warm colours used to paint the tigers and their habitat exude a sense of happiness and optimism.
- The book’s attractive format and high-quality paper and printing make it a keepsake.
- A list of Prerna Singh Bindra’s recommended books and authors on animals and wildlife at the end is a definite plus.
