Tigers in the Tower ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Julia Golding
Sahira’s family are travelling to England to deliver two majestic Indian tigers to the menagerie in the tower of London.
But tragedy strikes and sickness steals Sahira’s parents from her on the journey. Left alone in London, Sarhira finds herself confined to a miserable and dangerous orphanage. Despite her heartache and the threats she faces, Sahira is determined to carry out her father’s last request – to protect God’s beautiful creatures: her tigers. To do so, Sahira must set out on an adventure and use all her powers of persuasion to engage the help of some new friends along the way.
Can the quest to find her tigers a safe home, lead Sahira to find her own place of hope and belonging in this strange and foreign land?
Well this was a truly delightful tale. My heart broke for Sahira during her days at the orphanage. I can’t imagine feeling like you have no one to love you or even care for you. It made me think of all the children who are either without a home or without a loving home. I loved her and Ned’s friendship and how it developed through the story. Not to mention the one family member who sought to include her even though as a child himself, there was not much he could do. I love how Sahira cared and demonstrated her feelings for the tigers. Oh that we all had something or someone we would fight for and fiercely defend. This was such a fun imaginative story. I can’t wait to share this with my own children.
