Author Notes: Kate DiCamillo says of THE TIGER RISING, "Rob Horton first showed up in a short story I was writing. I finished the story, but apparently Rob wasn't finished with me. He hung around for weeks afterward, haunting the other stories I was working on. Finally, I said to him, 'What in the world do you want?' And he said, 'I know where there's a tiger.' Like Sistine, I said one word back to him, 'Where?' THE TIGER RISING is how Rob Horton answered me."
