愛、勇氣與童話交織的故事

以奇幻的筆觸書寫對生命的吶喊

媲美喬斯坦.賈德《紙牌的祕密》與凱薩琳.艾登《熊與夜鶯》的魔幻之作
 
  她沒有朋友,她安靜內向、膽小怯弱。
  但當老虎出現在她眼前,
  當危險逼近而親人垂危,無畏的靈魂開始翻騰。
  她決定成為一名追捕虎靈的獵人。
 
  莉莉總覺得自己很膽小,不受重視又不被看見,就像個「隱形女孩」。不過除了隱形之外,她還有一個超能力──她相信故事裡的魔法,她相信這世界上所有的可能性……
 
  在去海莫尼家的路上,莉莉看向窗外,卻意外瞥見一抹橘色──是隻如車子一般巨大的老虎,就像從海莫尼說的韓國民間故事裡走出來一樣。莉莉驚聲尖叫,要媽媽煞車,但奇怪的是,媽媽和姐姐似乎都對老虎視而不見!當床邊故事裡的老虎走入現實,莉莉發現她將面對的是家族的祕密……
 
  新銳作家泰.凱勒(Tae Keller)以全新角度爬梳韓國民間故事,並在字裡行間放下愛與希望,在寫實中融入傳說與魔法。她將家族中的苦痛與希望,過往的遺憾與悲傷,寫成愛、勇氣與童話交織的故事。細膩描繪在人生旅途中經歷種種苦難與掙扎之後,仍選擇用歡笑與愛豐富人生的人們。

  An uplifting story of a girl discovering a secret family history when she makes a deal with a magical tiger from her grandmother's stories, the Korean version of "Once upon a time..."

  Some stories refuse to stay bottled up...

  When Lily and her family move in with her sick grandmother, a magical tiger straight out of her halmoni's Korean folktales arrives, prompting Lily to unravel a secret family history. Long, long ago, Halmoni stole something from the tigers. Now they want it back. And when one of the tigers approaches Lily with a deal--return what her grandmother stole in exchange for Halmoni's health--Lily is tempted to agree. But deals with tigers are never what they seem! With the help of her sister and her new friend Ricky, Lily must find her voice...and the courage to face a tiger.

  Tae Keller, the award-winning author of The Science of Breakable Things, shares a sparkling tale about the power of stories and the magic of family. Think Walk Two Moons meets Where the Mountain Meets the Moon!

  "This beautiful book reminds us that he most powerful magic of storytelling is the story we decide to tell about ourselves."--Kat Yeh, author of The Truth About Twinkie Pie

  "An intoxicating mix of folktale, fantasy, friendship, and love (and tigers!)."--Marie Myung-Ok Lee, author of Finding My Voice

  "As unique as it is universal. Keller's writing shimmers with magic, heart, and hope."--Ali Standish, author of Before I Was Ethan
