Happy Bengali New Year! It's also TIGER BOY's Book Birthday!
|Happy Book Birthday to my new novel for young readers, TIGER BOY, set in the Sunderbans region of West Bengal, India! The publication date was picked months ago, and we had no idea that it would release on Bengali New Year's Day. It's the year 1422, people! Congratulations also to Jamie Hogan, the book's illustrator.|

|Even the binding of the book is beautiful. Thank you, Charlesbridge.|
