Temptations surround kids and it is easy to say 'yes' to exciting offers, but when they realize they may have made the wrong decision - perhaps of joining the wrong group of kids - correcting that mistake may be much harder. Riding the Tiger is an emotionally-rich allegorical tale about such choices, and about discovering the difference between fear and respect. An engaging read and a creative way of approaching a difficult subject.
