Tyger

In a strange alternate world, where the British Empire has never ended, a boy called Adam has found something incredible in a rubbish dump in London.  A mysterious, mythical, magical animal.  A Tyger...

Coming in October 2022 from David Fickling Books... SF Said's new book TYGER!

“I believe Tyger is my best book so far," says SF Said. "I wanted to write a story even more exciting than Varjak Paw, and even more ambitious than Phoenix.  It’s taken me nine long, hard years to do it but I am thrilled to be publishing it at last this year!"


"You wait years and years for a masterpiece, and then one comes along." – Frank Cottrell-Boyce

"Tyger is next level excellent – and Dave McKean's illustrations dovetail perfectly and beautifully with the story.  This book is a gem." – Malorie Blackman

"A profound, Blake-inspired novel, that's also a simple, thrilling tale of a boy and a girl and a Tyger.  A triumph!" – Jacqueline Wilson

"It will still be read in a hundred years.  This sublime, shimmering Blakeian fantasy - for children and adults alike - thrills, enlarges and heals the soul in equal measure.  An out and out masterpiece." – Piers Torday

"Breathtaking, in turns heart-breaking and achingly beautiful.  Imagination-stirring, wise and thought-provoking... Perfection." – Sophie Anderson

"Readers will fall in love with Tyger...  a timeless classic." – Sita Brahmachari

"An extraordinary read." – Jamila Gavin

"Tyger has gone straight in my top ten books of all time." – Lu Hersey
