I recently read the book The Tiger Rising by Kate Dicamillo. The genre of this book is realistic fiction and I recommend this book because the author uses vocabulary that evokes emotions in the reader. I would recommend this book for someone that has lost a loved one or someone going through a hard time. If you like this book then you will most likely enjoy Because of Winn Dixie. -Mrs. Timb's 2nd Block

The Tiger Rising is a great book. It is about a boy named Rob. Then Rob fines a tiger he could not stop thinking about it. then a new girl by the name of Sistine moved in. Rob thought she was trustworthy so he told Sistine about the tiger. I recommend this book to people who are in 3th to 6th grade.

I love this book. If you like adventure and are in 3rd-5th grade this book is recommended. It is about a boy named Rob. Rob's mom dies. They move to Florida where Rob meets a tiger who is in a cage. He met a girl during school named Sistine and he told her about the tiger and she is desperate to let it go. Together Rob and his father go through a lot of hard times.

I read this in my 4th grade class, and it was very good! Recommend it to ages 9 and up for some parts! It's fun as well!

The tiger rising does not have much adventure in my opinion. But it is funny and i love the characters of the book.

I love this book. The Tiger Rising is really intriguing. It is a really good book with lots of nice parts. I can't stop reading it!
