Abstract
 
Description
You are a Bengal tiger cub,
one of three-
Dacca, Rajpur, Raniganj-
abandoned by your mother.

You are so cold and thin
that someone with kind hands
puts you on a heating pad and sits by you for hours,
moistening your mouth with milk.

When you give a weak cry
and look up
there is a human face
almost crying too.

Your new mother
is Helen Delaney Martini,
who has already raised
a lion cub in her New York
apartment.
Tigers in the bathtub will be no problem for her
and her husband, Fred.

This remarkable book-
strikingly stripes as tigers are,
sympathetically spoken
as any child could wish-
tells the story of Helen Martini,
founder of the Bronx Zoo's
animal nursery in 1944
and its first woman zookeeper.
