When Lily and her family move in with her ailing Halmoni (grandmother), a magical tiger straight out of her halmoni’s Korean folktales arrives, prompting Lily to unravel a secret family history.
Long, long ago, Halmoni stole something from the tigers and now the tigers want it back. So the tiger visiting has arrived with an offer for Lily: return what Halmoni stole in exchange for the return of her Halmoni’s health.
It is a tempting offer; but deals with magical tigers are
not always what they appear to be. So Lily must, with the help of her sister
and her friend Ricky, find her voice and her courage, and face whatever
trickery the tiger may conjure.
