From the creative mind of rising star Mike Boldt comes a hilarious and original tale about overcoming back-to-school jitters, making new friends, and taking things in stride.
Anya wakes up to discover that she has grown a tiger tail. Yes, a striped tiger tail. It also happens to be the first day of school. What will the other kids think? Are girls with tiger tails even allowed to go to school?!
Anya is about to find out.
About the author
Mike Boldt has been my name
for quite a few years.
Some people call me an Author / Illustrator.
I’ve been called worse.
I still enjoy cartoons.
I like ice cream a lot.
I‘ve drawn since I was young.
I read (picture) books.
I like to write & draw them too.
I’m amazed and grateful every day this is my job.
“Boldt has a fine idea and the pictures to match: his digitally rendered images have a painterly, acrylic texture and sculptural exaggeration that dovetail well with the humorously over-the top situation.”
