Rob Horton is a young boy whose mother has recently died. His father uproots him from everything he knows and takes him to Lister, Florida to live in a seedy motel.

When ugly red blisters appear on Rob's legs at school, the principal fears it is a contagious infection and sends him home. On his way home, while walking through the misty Florida woods, Rob is shocked to find a real-life tiger pacing back and forth in a cage. On the same day, Rob meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who is outgoing and readily displays her feelings. Reproducible chapter questions, plus comprehension questions, a story summary, author biography, creative and cross curricular activities, complete with answer key.
