PAPERBACK PERFECT BOUND (180 pages) "PAPS WAS IN JAIL AGAIN. Paps was in jail and she hardly knew what to do with herself." So begins the plight of a nameless child who lives in a boxcar reading about Wonder Girl and wondering about adventure in a wonderless land. The world is on the verge of collapse, and when a man with tattoos on his face and his "crush" with blue eyes come peddling tickets to heaven she finds herself not only in pursuit of a ghost but hoping to right a number of wrongs. As insubstantial in her view of herself as the ghost she pursues, what is left but to find her seeking the entrance to heaven, propelled by a magical pipe right into the heart of a tiger with a monkey tagging along? WHAT THE TIGER SAID is a prequel to NEBRASKA'S MAP, a heroic odyssey, comic and poignant in the telling, and sets the stage for the world to come.
