Little Tiger is not like other tigers. She is curious about the world and always questions everything, not content to simply follow in her mother's footsteps and spend her days hunting around their home in the snow forests of Siberia. Instead, she embarks on a remarkable journey, intent on discovering the secrets of the Earth and eventually finding the creature she has heard most about: man.

This captivating story of a brave young tiger who refuses to give up on her dreams is a celebration of the power of nature and the beauty of innocence, and is a testament to the courage it takes to be true to ourselves.






Little Tiger tried hard to understand the nature of humans, and so she asked why man was so dangerous.
“A mushroom lives a mushroom’s life; a bee lives the life of a bee; and a tree a tree,’ he replied.
“The same goes for stones, water and clouds. Even lightning lives its own life, and so does hail. But everything changes when it comes to humans.”
