The Tyger Voyage

Knopf, 1976 - 30 sidor
The adventures of two young inexperienced Tygers, having bought a small boat, set sail from Victorian England into the timeless unknown, to the expressed dismay of their proper Victorian neighbor. Together the Tygers roam from their Victorian parlor across the seas, through jungles, past ice covered mountains and erupting volcanoes and finally back to the ceremonial hall where their feats are properly celebrated.
