When hunters invade the jungle, all the animals try to hide—except the tiger. He is strong, proud, and powerful; why should he flee like a bird or a monkey? But the humans are even more fearless than the tiger is, and he soon finds himself in a cage in the city. Will he ever see his home again?
Illustrated in glowing colors, The Last Tiger is a thoughtful fable about the dangers of pride and the value of freedom.
Deep in the jungle
lived a fearless tiger.
No other animal was as strong
and powerful as he was.
One day hunters came to the jungle.
All the animals tried to hide.
All except the tiger.
