Tiger in a Tutu

By Fabi Santiago

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

An uplifting and inspiring tale of ballet and friendship from a talented debut author/illustrator.

Max isn't like other tigers - he is a tiger with a dream! He longs to pirouette and plié, to leap and spin. He wants to be a dazzling ballet dancer, shining on the stage ... and a very special friend might just help his dream come true.

A delightfully funny story about friendship, self-belief and following your dreams.

"The saga of Max and his determination to get on the stage reads something like a fun version of Billy Elliot." Independent

"Little dancers will love to see Max triumph and get his moment in the spotlight." Parents in Touch

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2017 and featuring on the Scottish Book Trust list of Books That Challenge Gender Expectations.
