Malty is a little tiger who goes on a journey to a beautiful, diverse place called Biscuit Brook, only to be criticized for the sound of her roar along the way. She yearns to make friends, so throughout her journey, she attempts to mimic every character she meets. It is only when she is lost and alone that she discovers her true sound, and her true identity, are what will help her reach her destination.

Your children will giggle wildly as Malty tries to "Chirp!" like a bird or "Honk!" like a truck, but they won't just be amused by the hilarious story.
They'll learn new English and Spanish words while observing the beauty of diversity and their special role in it.
