The Tiger Who Sleeps Under My Chair
The Tiger Who Sleeps Under My Chair by Hannah Foley

Steeped in the natural history of Mary Anning's Jurassic Coast, a powerful dual-timeline story about friendship, mental health and hidden stories.

Emma Linden dreams of following in the footsteps of the famous fossil-hunter, Mary Anning. But when her brother James becomes obsessed with a tiger at the museum, Emma's world begins to spiral...

After Rosie falls ill, she discovers family secrets buried like layers of rock in the Jurassic Coast. With her new friend Jude, they must sift the past to find the answers.

A brave and beautifully written story set in contemporary and Victorian times, full of fossils, friendship, hope and healing.
