Why I liked this title:

The Sundarbans Tiger Reserve is located in Eastern India on the border of Bangladesh. You can only get to the tiger's flooded forest by boat. In this strange mangrove forest live tigers who "behave unlike any other tigers on earth" according to the author, Sy Montgomery. Learning the facts about these man-eating tigers (they don't eat women and children!) is fast-paced reading, and trying to separate the truth from the facts is difficult. Montgomery and photographer Eleanor Briggs tell a scary and fascinating story that is stranger than fiction!
