Tiger Skin Rug: A Magical Journey

Europa. Nov. 2021. 200p. Tr $17. ISBN 9781609457204.
Gr 3-7–After brothers Lal and Dilip Patel move from India to Scotland with their parents and Naniji, they quickly begin to miss home desperately. Everything in Scotland is strange—especially the tiger skin rug in their new drawing room that seems almost to move when the light hits it just right. So when Dilip discovers the tiger can move, the two jump at the chance to help him keep a long-kept promise and hopefully find their own way home again. Readers are sure to devour this magical, mysterious adventure of a debut, equal parts gentle and exhilarating. Lal and Dilip’s longing for the familiarity of home resonates, as do the lessons they learn along the way.
VERDICT A natural recommendation for fans of emotionally resonant adventure books, and authors such as Kate DiCamillo, Sara Pennypacker, and Katherine Applegate.
