I am representing renowned U. K. author, Tony Black, who is seeking a U. S. publisher for reprint of his literary young adult novel, The Last Tiger. A brief overview of the story is below.

Tasmania: 1909.

Twelve year-old Myko and his family have fled the Czarist occupation of their native Lithuania for the freedom of America, only to discover their ship has arrived in Tasmania.

Myko wonders what will become of them as he watches his father and mother become anxious about how they will survive in this new land, settled by the wild sons of convicts and, where tigers roam.
Myko has never seen a Tasmanian Tiger before except in his picture books and is filled with fear as stories of the tigers vicious attacks upon the island’s settlers are retold to him. He wishes his brother Jurgis was with him but knows his sibling’s disappearance is something he should force out of his mind.

But when his father takes work as a tiger trapper and Myko discovers the den of the last tigers, the family is thrust into a fight over fate of these beautiful wild beasts that will force dark secrets to the surface - and pit son against father.
