The Tiniest Tiger is an endearing story is about a little domestic cat who learns all about her wilder side when she meets up with real-life tigers, cheetahs, and lions at the zoo. Beautifully illustrated, we learn all about The Tiniest Tiger, based on the author’s real life cat, Gracie. The Tiniest Tiger’s quest for friends and knowledge of her heritage takes place at the local zoo and as she explores the wild side, we learn all about the real life “big cats” and how we can help endangered animals.
This book is a heartwarming look inside the world of big cats through the eyes of our smaller cats.
If you have a young reader, an animal lover, or even someone who may not like cats, this is the book to give them. They will immediately form a deeper understanding and appreciation of all felines.
McGonagel has done an amazing job of portraying cats of all sizes and when you read her blog and see her work in the field, you’ll understand why she shares such a deep connection with cats. Her own cat, Gracie is indeed the perfect specimen of the Tiniest Tiger…
A small business founder and owner since she reluctantly left college, Joanne was fortunate to sell off a specialty frozen line she developed to a private equity group last year. During nights of insomnia while worrying about the woes of business ownership she wrote The Tiniest Tiger (www.thetiniesttiger.com), an educational fiction story that compares and contrasts the similarities and differences of big cats. Key facts are added to the illustrations to pique curiosity in the reader to learn about the conservation status of each cat. The Tiniest Tiger was recently selected as part of the Kuder Galaxy, an e-learning curriculum in 10,000 schools reaching approximately 3,000,000 students.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of The Tiniest Tiger are being donated to conservation projects for endangered wild cats in Africa, Asia, North America, and South America, through the Conservation Fund of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Joanne is currently working on the next book in The Tiniest Tiger series.
