Written & Signed by SF Said
Illustrated Dave McKean
In a strange alternate world, where the British Empire has never ended, a young boy called Adam has uncovered something incredible in a rubbish dump in London. A mysterious, mythical, magical animal. A TYGER...
“I believe Tyger is my best book so far. I wanted to write a story even more exciting than Varjak Paw, and even more ambitious than Phoenix. It’s taken me nine long, hard years to do it but I am thrilled to be publishing it at last this year – the Year of the Tiger!” – SF Said
David Fickling Books has landed Tyger, the fourth novel from SF Said, marking the return of his partnership with illustrator Dave McKean.
Commissioning editor Rosie Fickling said:
"You wait years and years for a masterpiece, and then one comes along." – Frank Cottrell-Boyce
"Tyger is next level excellent – and Dave McKean's illustrations dovetail perfectly and beautifully with the story. This book is a gem." – Malorie Blackman
"A profound, Blake-inspired novel, that's also a simple, thrilling tale of a boy and a girl and a Tyger. A triumph!" – Jacqueline Wilson
"It will still be read in a hundred years. This sublime, shimmering Blakeian fantasy - for children and adults alike - thrills, enlarges and heals the soul in equal measure. An out and out masterpiece." – Piers Torday
