Joe Maloney is out of place in this world. His mother
wants him to be a man, and he can’t be that yet. His only friend, Stanny Mole,
wants to teach him how to kill, and Joe can’t learn that. Joe’s mind is always
somewhere else: on the weird creatures he sees in the distant sky, the songs he
hears in the air around him, the vibrations of life he feels everywhere.
Everybody laughs at Joe Maloney.
And then a tattered circus comes to town, and a tiger
comes for him. It leads him out into the night, and nothing in Joe Maloney’s
world is ever the same again.
The transformative power of imagination and beauty flows
through this story of a boy who walks where others wouldn’t dare to go, a boy
with the heart of a tiger, an unlikely hero who knows that sometimes the most
important things are the most mysterious. Download and start listening now!
