A Quieter Story

A girl sets out to write a story about a kitten, but the kitten objects, wanting to be called a tiger. The tiger wants bigger and bigger adventures until the tension is unbearable for the tiger, and ridiculous for the reader. This fun meta-fictive story celebrates the quieter elements of story while poking a bit at over-the-top action stories. Delightfully written and illustrated by Liza Woodruff.
