Tigers don’t talk (well, at least not in ‘people’ language). Tigers don’t have names either. But then T-Cub is a very special tiger cub and he wants to tell you his story. It’s about his life in a forest in India, and his animal friends (and foes) including monkeys, peacocks and elephants.

T-Cub is naughty, curious, lovable and brave (and sometimes scared too!). He is living the good life of a wild tiger—prowling the forest, loved by his Ma, teased by his sister. He is learning the ways of the jungle, to hunt, to be a tiger… And then one day his mother vanishes, and T-Cub learns another lesson—it isn’t easy being a tiger.

Illustrated by Maya Ramaswamy.

‘This is a must-read book for children interested in wild tigers. Prerna Bindra highlights the remarkable relationship between the mother and cubs in the most engaging of ways.’
—Valmik Thapar

‘All human babies are born wild animals! As they grow up, we “unwild” them. What Prerna Bindra has done with When I Grow Up... is to remind children of their wildness, something that adults need to be reminded of too! Hopefully this delightfully-written, exquisitely-illustrated book will help create thousands of tiny forces of nature.’
—Bittu Sahgal, Editor, Sanctuary Asia

‘We must preserve the rich tapestry of our wild and natural habitats, wetlands and protected areas if we hope to preserve the health of water, soil, and ensure food security for future generations. Our children cannot laugh on barren lands full of manmade clutter.’
—Maya Ramaswamy
