The vortex of the city life, accelerated and daring, is presented as a scenario of imminent danger. It seems to be a surreptitious criticism of whether it is healthy and sane to remain in a place that is so different from our natural state, for it is true that we find ourselves crowded, stressed and alienated in the city. While, in nature, nomadic or sedentary, there was the possibility of being attacked by a predator -although humans are almost at the top of the food chain- we are always thrown into uncertainty, but nostalgic for a nature that is simpler and more intuitive.
The book, beautifully illustrate, begins with curious landscapes of the natural forest, and a tiger that stands out as noble, a wonderful virtue indeed. His curiosity, since he is a big cat, after all, leads him to walk beyond the known and into a new jungle, quite gray and strange, seen from afar. But the tiger, playful, marvels at all the new things he observes and discovers, especially the new animals he has never seen before.
