Children’s book tells tiger’s tale
The author of a book about a tiger which spent part of its life in Smarden will be signing copies at Waterstone’s, Ashford, on Saturday.
Indy the tiger appeared on TV in the series Jonathan Creek.
It spent many years at the Wildlife Heritage Foundation in Smarden and the sister park, Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire.
Martin Hill, who has worked with big cats since 1996 at Paradise Wildlife Park, has written Indy Film Star, a children’s picture book which tells the tiger’s story from the animal’s view.
The book is aimed at three to seven-year-olds and is illustrated by Marisa Morgan. Tiger facts and the importance of conservation are included.
A percentage of the sales will go to Friends of Paradise, a charity dedicated to animal conservation.
Mr Hill will be at Waterstone’s in County Square at 10.30am.
Indy Film Star is published by Indy Publishing and is available from Waterstone’s and Amazon at £6.99.
