This chapter book tells the story of a young girl names Lily. When Lily and her family move in with her sick grandmother, a magical tiger appears in the night and offers Lily a deal to heal her grandmother. This leads to a magical journey where she finds her own voice and strength. Lily learns the true value of facing the truth even when it is difficult or painful. Lily also learns a lot from her grandmother about storytelling and confronting fears.

I think that this is a great book for intermediate students and one that would create many opportunities for students to stretch their creating thinking through discussions.… (mais)

Gr 4–7—Lily has always known, thanks to her Halmoni's stories, that tigers can't be trusted. Even so, when a
magical tiger appears in her grandmother's basement with a deal to heal the ailing woman, Lily is willing to do
whatever it takes—even if that means trapping the tiger. What follows is a glorious tale of self-discovery and family
overflowing with Korean folklore and magical realism. Thought-provoking and deeply moving.

Really enjoyed . Author tries , perhaps, to deal with too many themes . Cancer,dementia, the loss of a parent, lgbtq, racism,classism…. She is fairly successful, but , understandably, some ideas get short shrift because so much is going on. Still, the Korean culture and folklore throughout and a nice solid central character make for a great story

- Age: Intermediate

- About a girl who grandma is sick and in order to heal her she must return something that was stole from a tiger. The deal is shady and the story of what happened is share.

- I think this would be a cool book to have on my shelf as it is a story about culture and a bit of fantasy.
