Tyler the tigon has never fitted in. Neither a tiger like his dad nor a lion like his mum, poor Tyler stands 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 should he find there? An equally extraordinary creature with a tale to match his own… 

 

‘The Tigon and the Liger is destined to become a new classic and is a book every child should grow up reading.’ – First News '

    A clever, moving and uplifting rhyming story that celebrates being mixed race

    This is a fabulous rhyming story which encourages children to love the skin they’re in and is a book you will want to read over and over again. The illustrations bring this story to life and help you visualise what a tigon and liger look like.
