      Sometimes when I pick a read aloud for my students I have one student in mind who I hope it touches I was surprised by who connected to this short sad story Beatriz is not my class star She is not a trouble maker or time taker either She loved this book and today as I finished it and we spent sometime reflecting on it she surprised me by being the one student who really got that this story isn t really about a tiger They key word in the title is actually rising This book is the first really sad [...]

      this author probably gives out prunes to kids on halloween this is the second of her books i have read, and it s another depressing one it s true, both of them end on sortof upbeat themes like the redemptive power of love once you are so broken and disfigured it s almost not even worth it or the liberating feeling of overcoming grief after so much death and senseless destruction that no one really cares about your tiny feelings so yeah little happy afterthoughts but they are hardly a balm the la [...]

      Reviewed by Rusty Key Writer Jordan B NielsenRecommended for EVERYONE aged twelve and up, both boys and girls There are some adult themes, and mild, but poignant violence, which will probably be affecting to those over twenty than the younger set, who might not feel its full force.One Word Summary RadiantOh Kate, you ve done it again The words Kate DiCamillo are becoming than just a name, but a state of being If you re feeling a little Kate DiCamillo , chances are you re a bit weepy and nostal [...]

      I read this book while at camp It wasn t very exciting, or with much of a climax Let me give you a plot summary There is a tiger in town, this girl likes it, and so does this boy They want to let it out, but the boy s father works for the man who is holding the tiger captive SO they finally let the tiger go, and guess what, the dad shoots it He claims a loose tiger would ve been dangerous The ending leaves you with a so what effect, leaving you to wonder what you gained from the book I didn t ga [...]

      I ve read several of Kate DiCamillo s novels, and I use two of them with my students I was hoping that The Rising Tiger would be one that I could add to my repertoire, but I m afraid that I really didn t care for it I found the characters to be underdeveloped I know that Rob and his father have suffered through a tragedy, but I didn t learn much about them beyond that As a result, I didn t really bond with them I felt the same way about Sistine She s a flashy character in the way she dresses an [...]

    6. Stacey on said:

      The Tiger Rising is the story of two very sad and broken children, and how they are saved by a tiger, but not at all in the way you would expect This story broke my heart There s something about the way DiCamillo writes that touches my deepest emotions I don t know if I can explain how or why, but it s as if I feel the stories, instead of reading them It s some strange retro childhood cathartic experience that makes me want to cry myself clean, as if my child tears could wash away all the stains [...]

      2.5Estuvo bien, sin embargo, el libro claramente, desde un principio, busca conmover al lector y tratar de tocar su coraz n, no est mal que lo haga, pero la intenci n es tan clara que resulta forzada Tiene un inicio r pido y un final precipitado Creo que la autora se inclina por este tipo de libros, cortos pero con peso, y est bien, solo que no siempre resulta adecuado, como en este caso Toca un tema fuerte de una manera nerviosa y r pida, lo cual no permite que el lector conecte con la fuerza d [...]

      Pernahkah kau merasa seperti menyimpan seekor harimau di dalam hatimu Mungkin ada beberapa dari kita yang pernah atau masih menyimpan harimau di dalam hatinya Harimau itu bisa berupa kesedihan, kemarahan, kepahitan, pemberontakan, dan berbagai macam lagi yang terus dipendam dalam hati sampai berkarat, dan akhirnya menyedot sisa kehidupan yang kita miliki.The Tiger Rising mengisahkan seorang anak lelaki, Rob Horton, yang berjuang melawan kesedihannya karena ditinggal ibunda tercinta Rob sampai pa [...]

      Wow I m quite speechless This book is simply such an amazing book Although the storyline particularly for me was a bit boring, but the meaning and the metaphors from this book were extraordinary I didn t like how the author killed the tiger at the end but I understand why she did, it made it powerful I for one, did not clearly understand this meaning a bit confusing for me Another thing that I thought would happen was if the rash did go away after he let out his sadness The book didn t mention [...]

      WOOHOO SPOILER FREEOf course I am going to give this five stars, it s by my favorite author But if I could, I might have given it a 4 8, just because it might have been my least favorite of her books What I really like about this story is that there is a lot of character development in this book, with very important life lessons I also related to Rob in away I ve never related to a character before his itchy legs My entire life I have never been able to stop the scratching No medicine, no pep ta [...]

      spoilers I should preface this by saying that I usually love Kate DiCamillo Although the book was very short, the characters were well developed Here s the kicker for me it read like a school book Let s all talk about the tiger s death and whether it had to happen Should Rob have done anything differently etc The setting is a little strange, almost like the book is set in a bubble I don t mind this it gives it a timeless quality that many classic children s books have but it makes the characters [...]

      I liked it because the book was very described by that i mean you can really picture what was going on.

    18. Maile Adams on said:

      I thought this book was very interesting It had a lot of unexpected things in the book that I would not have expected For me, this book was kind of hard to understand One thing would lead to the next and sometimes I would just get lost in the book I would recommend this book to anyone interested in action books This book was about a boy named Rob who was wandering along in the forest one day and spotted a tiger in a cage That same day he met this girl who happened to be in the forest as well The [...]

      You ve probably had the experience of looking at a body of water so clear, that the bottom appears like it s a couple of feet away You re sure you could reach down and touch it You could stand in the water up to your hips But then you wade in, and find that you lose your footing, and begin to swim or float or tread water, being surprised by the depth.That s what Kate DiCamillo books have been like for me They appear on the surface to be simple children s tales As an adult, you wade in casually, [...]

      Kate DiCamillo is a talented writer I have at least four of her books, and always manage to find myself sucked into her stories all of them except for this one I debated writing this review for a few reasons One was that as a 20 year old adult I do not feel that I should have much input on children s novels They aren t geared towards me, and any book that encourages a child to read is a good book However, here I am, weighing in on this book and a few of the troupes I found within.The story itsel [...]

      I read this as a sort of fill in book waiting for a book I ordered and I thought it was ok, but quite bland and a little unimpressive with the symbolism I was expecting, but of course I have to keep in mind this is a children s s book Overall, not one of the best children s books I ve read, but would recommend younger kids read it just to try it.

    24. Megan Davis on said:

      I enjoyed this book for what it was A quiet, melancholy look at life, love, and grief from the perspective of a child Some complain that it s too sad, but it s meant to be sad Get over it Life is sad Sometimes we learn to love for having been hurt And some people relate best to the entire world from the standpoint of sadness If you don t, and you don t understand it, go read Mary Poppins I liked the two children who were thrown together I liked how Sistine was not polite to Rob, she simply was [...]
