According to Luana, the young protagonist of this book, it’s not easy to live with a white tiger, although she did get used to it right away. Now she tells us how the white tiger, who is her best friend, accompanies her in each of her moods and listens to her, for example when Luana is afraid and talks non-stop, because the white tiger is braver than darkness. But the white tiger is peculiar and sometimes he goes away on a trip, leaving her alone with ants of impatience growing in her pants. Page after page, Mar Benegas traces the map of her young protagonist’s feelings, and how, thanks to the help of the white tiger, she learns to inhabit the world. The poetic prose of Mar Benegas is accompanied by the illustrations of Francisca Yáñez, which have the power of that which is essential. I have a tiger made of snow and coal. He is white because he gave me all the colors. I have a white tiger made of paper and storm who keeps all the words for me. I have a white tiger who accompanies me, even when he's not there.
