Sara K. Wall, an educator and interpreter for the deaf, comes from several generations of writers. Having circulated her stories among family and friends for years, she was at last persuaded to submit her work for publication. The results were immediate, with the publication of the highly regard  novella Enchanted Beast, followed by Christmas After Woodstock.  With the success of those two young adult titles, she turned her attention to mid-grade readers with the fantasy story Where Did You Get Your Tiger, Robert


Robert is moving up to middle school, which is difficult enough. He is also taking along his best friend, Boo the Tiger. Boo is talkative and very smart. He gives Robert good advice just when he needs it. The problem is, only Robert can hear what Boo says. Robert’s mother wonders if he needs counseling. Alton, the biggest bully in middle school, is determined to grab Boo and get rid of him. It’s not easy being the newest, youngest kid in middle school. This short novella is rooted in wisdom and yet grows in many unexpected and fanciful ways. Mid grade readers up to adults will find its story challenging, moving and lots of fun.
