Two homesick Indian boys and their new Scottish friend join a magical tiger on a journey across continents.

Lal and his brother Dilip miss home. They don’t like drizzle, midges, or the tiger skin rug in their creepy new house. All they want is to leave Scotland and go back to India. But that’s before they make friends with Jenny, the girl next door—and before the tiger skin rug comes back to life.

The tiger tells them it will take them home in return for their help, but it must first fulfill an old promise.

An adventure story in which the young protagonists learn not only the true significance of the tiger skin rug’s final message but also come to understand the real meaning of home.

“Elegant and enchanting. This grand, sweeping adventure takes the reader far and wide but, ultimately, is all about finding home.”—Anna Humphrey (author of Quack and the Mega Bat series)
