Author, SF Said. Illustrator, Dave McKean

David Fickling Books

This is a beautifully written blend of myths, legends and history, accompanied by breathtaking black and white illustrations that bring the story to life.

The judges described Tyger as a “masterpiece” and a “triumph”. The gripping adventure is set in an alternative London and follows teenagers Adam and Zadie as they set out to save the mythical, magical Tyger, and the city itself.


SF Said’s carefully crafted story is powerful, entertaining and educational, transporting readers to a realm filled with wonder and laced with danger. The judges praised the “boundless talent and creative genius” of both the author and the illustrator.
