Tile Fifteen

Having written tile sixteen, there isn’t a lot left to say about tile fifteen. It will be, I hope, a sibling tile, so I’ve left the tiger’s tale hanging off to the right. And another stripped object is entering from the right that could be just about anything in another three years. We’re crossing our fingers.

The focus of the tile is the plump tame tiger, Boots. In Lynne Reid Banks’s Tiger Tiger, he wanders out of the polite Roman estate and enjoys a day in the wild. Two children, Aurelia and Marcus, go looking for him but have no luck. In this depiction, the children see the tiger, but they also see an entirely new world outside the hollow tree. They are still emotional, but for different reasons.
