-A delightful debut picture book about a wrestler who although tough in the ring is actually very shy and is looking for a friend.

-Hilarious and also tender, Cali's charming text combined with Tanco's adorable illustrations tell an important story about bravery and the importance of friendship.

-A heart warming story about what true bravery looks like and that being tough comes in all guises!

Meet Mr. Tiger, the bravest, the strongest and the greatest wrestler in the ring. With his tradesmark move, "The Leap of the Tiger", he has defeated his most formidable rivals: Black Claw, Boogeyman, Constrictor and Blob.

But outside the ring, despite the muscles and the fierce mask, Mr. Tiger is painfully shy. Even speaking to the lady he secretly admires seems impossible - until a loyal friend helps him out.

Enter the ring and find out what happens when a tough body houses a sweet heart!
