Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This wonderfully woven story will pull at the young reader's heart strings. Aidan McRory, a famous adventure writer, through a series of events meets the two young tiger brothers, Kumal and Sangha, in the Southeastern Asian jungle. Kumal is the fearless cub, while Sangha is typically shyer. Both of these brothers are separated from their mother and lose their father, plus they are taken away from one another in this adventure story. Kumal ends up in the circus and, due to the unscrupulous circus owner, he is exploited to perform tricks and be known as "Man Eater." Sangha, on the other hand, is kept as a pet by a little boy, but he is cast aside because of a defensive attack on a household pet. In this vividly descriptive story, readers will see the travesties that occur against the animal kingdom because of fortune hunters, circuses, and hunting for sport. Without being too graphic for the young reader, compassion and empathy will be felt for the two brothers whose goal is to be reunited with their mother, Tigress. 2005, Newmarket Press, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-A novel fleshed out from the skeleton of a screenplay. Ellison is known for novelizations of motion pictures, and here he delves deeply into the emotions and minds of a polyglot assortment of humans (heroes, villains, and extras) and the stars of the film-a pair of tiger cubs. The florid text presents a series of rather illogical and unrealistic adventures (great cinema fodder, though) and an unlikely (though emotionally gratifying) conclusion. For fans of the film, an amplified souvenir. For those who haven't seen the movie-rent the DVD.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
