Tiger Lily: A Heroine in the Making by Maeve Friel
Published by Stripes Publishing, 2007
Tiger Lily will never make her name as an adventurous heroine in her quiet village, appropriately named, The Middle of Nowhere. To make matters worse, she doesn’t even have a ‘trusty devoted companion.’ Neither does she have her own transport. But inspired by her insatiable appetite for books, Tiger Lily is not to be defeated. She makes a raft, assigns her friend Sammy to be her right hand man and the adventures begin… Competent young readers aged eight and over will love this book. Its unique presentation including printed email messages, diary extracts and book reports by Tiger Lily will tempt the reluctant reader also. Why not visit The Middle of Nowhere, home of Tiger Lily at where you can download word searches, book reports and read extracts from other books by Maeve Friel.
