A female tiger is told by the great god Shav to expect nine baby cubs a year as long as she remembers this promise. Bird's interest in self-preservation leads to tricking Tiger into only having one cub every nine years, which is why there are so few tigers on the earth today! The silkscreen, watercolor and colored pencil art created for this book was adapted from the story cloth stitchery techniques of Hmong women.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
