Synopsis:
Face to face with the mightiest and most majestic predator in the jungle, Elsie is in awe of the tiger's beauty. She's on a mission to have the adventure of a lifetime, save the tiger and change the future. With echoes of Tom's Midnight Garden, Tania Unsworth writes about transcendent friendships and conservation in the animal kingdom. Elsie is not looking forward to the long summer holiday with her creaky, old Uncle John. But then the unimaginable happens as Time unravels and Elsie tumbles back to 1940s India to meet her Uncle John as a young boy on a tiger hunt. Can Elsie stop him from doing what he's already told her is a wrong he can never right? The Time Traveller and the Tiger is a multi-layered novel for 9-12 year-olds, rich in adventure, mystery, historical and conservation themes. Praise for The Time Traveller and the Tiger: 'Spine-tinglingly good. Enthralling and prize-worthy' AMANDA CRAIG 'A classic adventure, and a transporting evocation of the mighty, beautiful, much misunderstood creature at its heart' PIERS TORDAY 'An atmospheric adventure story with a strong message about the importance of conservation' BOOKTRUST
