Inspired by the art and sport of lucha libre, this picture book follows a masked wrestler who, although tough in the ring, is actually very shy and is looking for a friend

Meet Mr. Tiger, the bravest, the strongest, and the greatest wrestler in the ring. With his trademark move, “The Leap of the Tiger,” he has defeated his most formidable rivals: Black Claw, Boogeyman, Constrictor, and Blob. But outside the ring, despite the muscles and the fierce mask, Mr. Tiger is painfully shy. Even speaking to the lady he secretly admires seems impossible—until a loyal friend helps him out. Enter the ring and find out what happens when a tough body houses a sweet heart!
