2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By E. R. Bird on Dec 4 2003
Format: Paperback
This was a well-crafted book in many ways, and a flawed piece of literature in many others. I've rarely read such an honest acceptance of the ways kids act at school. Moreover, the realistic ways in which Rob, the protagonist, and Sistine, his new friend, deal with grief is fantastic. Most characterizations were right on the money. Though seen only briefly, I loved the portrayal of Sistine's mother. I've met women like that. Unfortunately, DiCamillo falls into a trap so many writers and screenwriters have fallen into before. She has inserted "the magical black friend" found in many a modern text. Such characters usually don't show any weaknesses (or if they do they're either vaguely eluded to or not their own fault) and serve simply as enormous founts of wisdom and patience. While the character of Willie May does come right out and say that she is not a prophetess, she may as well be. She's never wrong and she serves the infuriating purpose of showing the white people how to work through their emotions. And while I like that DiCamillo even had a black person in the book, one with a little more complexity beyond serving the plot would have been nice. The book is rather similar to "Bridge to Terabithia", in terms of a new girl opening a boy's eyes to a world of possibilities. Recommended with reservations.

I give this book a star because it was slow, dumb and hard to understand, it would have been a lot better if the tiger hadn't been shot.

By A Book Buff on April 21 2005
Format: Paperback
The Tiger Rising is an incredible book! I read it to my daughters and we just couldn't stop reading. It is a simple tale about sadness and anger, losing those we love most, finding beauty in simple things and the sublime in everything, and most of all it is about the way that friendship can take you by suprise and become the most important asset you'll ever have.
Kate Dicamillo is a superior storyteller. She weaves a web of intricate relationships and presents characters that walk on the outside of the box. She gives us strong girls and gentle boys and makes the "outcast" just as human as any of us. The Tiger Rising (as well as Because of Winn-Dixie, which you must read as well!) are spectacular books for children and adults alike. They speak to us in the language we all understand, emotion. You won't be disappointed by this book!

Kate DiCamillo has done it again. Along the same lines as "Because of Winn-Dixie" this story gets deep into the heart of it's main character.
As a media specialist, I highly recommend ALL of DiCamillo's books. Buy them, check them out at a library, borrow them. Whatever you have to do...just read them. WONDERFUL!

Format: Paperback
Rob Horton, a young, brave boy who is about to find something amazing in his life. As he lives in the "Kentucky Star Motel" with his dad, and he finds a tiger in the back of the Motel. A new person comes to his scool, called Sistine, and they both become best friends. Together they go and visit the tiger after school everyday. Whenone day they let the tiger out of his cage and the tiger runs to the motel. When they hear screams and shoots of a gun they knew what happened. The best friends learn what its like to lose something close to them, and how to get through it.
"Tiger Rising" is a great book of family, bravery, and friendship. Dicamillo keeps you reading this book. Dicamilo also has you visualize whats happening in the book. I learned what it was like to lose something close to you. From this book I also learned what frindship really is.
"Tiger Rising" is an exciting, page-turning book. I would recomend this book to anyone who likes an exciting, page-turning book. Also to someone who like's when they can visualize whats happening in in the story. And a story with friendship and family.

Format: Paperback
Tiger Rising, by Kate DiCamillo, is about a girl named Sistine who has just moved to a town in Florida, and meets a boy named Rob. Rob doesn't have to go to school for a while because he has a rash on his leg. One day he is out in the woods and he finds a tiger. The owner of the Kentucky Star Motel, where he is living, pays him to feed the tiger. Rob shows Sistine and she thinks he should let it go. In the end Rob ends up letting his emotions out of his "suitcase" that have been closed up for years. This book is about Rob finding himself. I thought it was a great book. I loved how Kate DiCamillo created the characters. They weren't really described very much, but you could picture them in your head. I really enjoyed reading this book. I'm sure you will to.
