The Tigon and 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.
