A flock of sheep hidden in a cavern and, outside, a clever hungry tiger that cannot get in. How will the tiger manage to get the sheeps out one by one, to eat them? Thanks to riddles, deceptions and lies, the hungry and insatiable tiger will succeed, not considering that there is always some kind of retaliation, so the trickster will be tricked…

FABIAN NEGRIN was born in Cordoba, Argentina in 1963, and he is now an Italian citizen. After finishing high school, he moved to Mexico city to study illustration, painting, and graphic design at Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, during which time he began publishing illustrations and working on graphic design projects in prominent Mexican newspapers. His complex and innovative approaches create an interesting relationship between text and image, and he works to deconstruct stereotype by representing childhood through otherness. His innovative style has earned him a number of awards, including the 2010 BolognaRagazzi Award for Non-Fiction. His picture-books have been translated into many languages, including French, English, Spanish, and Korean.
