Ari (acwulff) | 10 comments I read a book in Junior High, and I think the title was Paper Tiger or Paper Tigers..but I can't find it on amazon or anywhere.

The main character was a boy and there was some kind of espionage. Can someone help me fill in the details?

Ari (acwulff) | 10 comments I don't think that's it, KT, but it sounds like a fun read. However, Peking does ring a bell.

Heron | 52 comments Also: There's a si fi publisher called Paper Tiger. Could it have by put out by them?


message 5: by Ari (new)

Ari (acwulff) | 10 comments Read the book in 6th or 7th grade...that would have been circa 1972-73. Paper Tiger was not the publisher's name.

Cynthia (pandoraphoebesmom) Maybe Ride a Paper Tiger by William Ash...but I can't find any real info about it other than it's a mystery it's about 200 pages long which would be appropriate for that age group...it's the best suggestion I can give you though.

Luscious | 3 comments I read one called Tiger Eyes, but it was about a girl not a boy. She had supernatural powers and was sought out by the government.

rivka | 303 comments I think you may be confusing Tiger Eyes with The Girl with the Silver Eyes.

Luscious | 3 comments Oops you're right. Hey junior high was a LONG time ago LOL

rivka | 303 comments I own a copy of Tiger Eyes, and I've been known to reread it. ;)

Ride a Paper Tiger was Cynthia's suggestion. Cayr, was that your book?
