The long-awaited TYGER is coming Thursday, 6 October, 2022!! 

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:

“Tyger isn’t just a book, it’s a gateway into another world.  A world where we all have sparks, hidden powers, inside of us.  It’s the kind of book where you start to wonder: What if? Could it be? 
"I’ve had the privilege of immersing myself in this story with SF throughout the editorial process and I can’t wait to see the same light in readers’ eyes that I feel in me now.  After reading, I hope they also find themselves increasingly noticing the world around them, looking more closely at a flower, at a grain of sand – and perhaps, every time they smell honeysuckle, hopefully whispering ’Is the Tyger nearby?’”
Praise for Tyger:

"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

"Breathtaking, in turns heart-breaking and achingly beautiful.  Imagination-stirring, wise and thought-provoking... Perfection." – Sophie Anderson

"Readers will fall in love with Tyger...  a timeless classic." – Sita Brahmachari

"An extraordinary read." – Jamila Gavin

"Tyger has gone straight in my top ten books of all time." – Lu Hersey

*First print first edition has a printing error. Page one should appear under the italicised words starting: It happened in the 21st Century…as it does in the proof. But in this edition it appears on the first page of Chapter 1. (TYGER is already on its second print run where this error has been corrected.)
