The Last Tiger

By Petr Horacek
Illustrated by Petr Horacek

When the last tiger is captured by human hunters, he realises that it is more important to be free than to be strong...

Strong and proud, the tiger is lord of the jungle, but all his strength and boldness cannot keep him safe from the human hunters. In captivity, the tiger realises that what really matters is not strength or power, but freedom. Moving, thought-provoking and superbly illustrated by an award-winning picture book creator - this is an important fable for our time.
