How did I get the book?
Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Picture Book

Synopsis: Dorje is a beautiful Royal Bengal Tiger — but he has no stripes on his body. In a small Buddhist monastery in Tibet, Master Wu, a good-hearted monk, tries to understand the secret of Dorje’s missing stripes.

This story, sensitively written by Anshumani Ruddra and beautifully illustrated by Korean illustrators Gwangjo and Jung-a Park, takes us to Tibet, Bengal and the heart of the Royal Bengal Tiger.

Mini review: This picture book is illustrated with beautiful watercolour images. They a vivid and mesmerising, Dorje leaping from the pages has his tale is told.

The story of how is stripes disappeared is sad. As the tigers in the wild were hunted and killed Dorje’s lost them until he was the last tiger, one without stripes, finding refuge in the monastery. But now there is hope as Dorje has a new stripe.
