The Tigon and the Liger
Have you ever felt like you don’t fit in? Tyler the Tigon certainly did…until he met Lyla the Liger.
Tyler the tigon has never fit in. Neither a tiger like his dad nor a lion like his mom, poor Tyler sticks out like a sore thumb. Taunted and teased by the other jungle creatures, he flees into the forest with the weight of the world on his shoulders. But who does he find there? An equally extraordinary creature with a tale to match his own…
A delightful story in rhyming verse about appreciating your differences and learning to love the skin you’re in.

“I think it’s important that everyone knows it’s good to be different. The world would be so boring if everyone was exactly alike! This is a really sweet story about being exactly who you are” —Shreya (Age 7), Kids Book Buzz
