Description


This is the true story of Nasira, Anjika, and Sidani, three white Bengal tiger cubs whose mother stopped nursing them only fifteen hours after their birth. Luckily, two zookeepers, Tom and Allie Harvey, were keeping a close eye on them.

The Harveys paired the hungry cubs with their golden retriever, Isabella—who was still nursing her own puppy—to see if Isabella would feed and care for the baby tigers. The match was a success: Isabella immediately adopted the cubs as if they were her very own . . . Tiger Pups! This sensational story swept the country, and Isabella and the tiger pups have become the darlings of the media.

Captured in adorable, intimate, and exclusive images by Tom Harvey and National Geographic photographer Keith Philpott, here is the fascinating story of the cubs and how they make the transition from living in the house with the Harveys to their new den outdoors. At two months, the cubs are active, curious, and playful. They get into everything! Share in this remarkable and heartwarming story that marks a truce in the age-old battle between cats and dogs.
