This book is a bit different from the ones I usually read as it is a nonfiction book, written like a story. I loved every page of this book because it doesn't have too much detail like a school history book you're supposed to read that's jam-packed with dates, names, and complicated things.

This book is about the extinction of Tasmanian tigers. They were carnivorous marsupials the size of a large dog with tiger-like stripes. When Tasmania was still a part of Mainland Australia, Tasmanian tigers were driven to extinction by competition from dingos and deseases. The last of the tigers were sealed off on Tasmania when rising sea levels disconnected it from the mainland. This book follows the story of how tigers first got a bad name among the settlers and explorers until the time of modern science gave cloning Tasmanian Tigers a glimmer of hope.

This is one of the books from the History Mysteries series by Mark Greenwood. I got a signed copy of this book when he visited my school. I reccommend this series for everyone. Kids, adults, teachers, and students alike.
