When her grandma mentions to a bored Nora that she’s seen a tiger in the garden, Nora is sceptical. She takes Jeff, her toy giraffe, outside and soon finds huge dragonflies, giraffe eating plants and a grumpy polar bear. Surprised, Nora is “definitely, one hundred percent sure” there is no tiger. That is until she comes face to face with the “extraordinarily friendly” tiger. Is it real? The tiger and Nora are not sure, but the tiger has an idea. “If you believe in me, then maybe I’ll be real.” Nora rides home on the tiger’s back and shares her discoveries with her grandma.
