Young Truman the Tiger hadn't yet found his roar and that had him worried. His parents had healthy roars and all his friends had meows which would soon turn into roars. Truman decided to roam Tiger Country and search for his roar. He kept looking everywhere and he returned home upset because he still hadn't found his roar. His mother consoled him by saying he had to be patient because it takes a longer time for some cubs. His father told him that he found his roar in the zoo. Truman set out for the zoo under St. Louis Arch the next day. Though he met a lot of Tiger fans, he could not find his roar. He met an Old Tiger who told him to go to the zoo in the west. Let's join Truman on his journey and discover how he found his roar and ended up becoming the official mascot of the University of Missouri.

How Truman Found His Roar by Aaron Fox is a delightful story that conveys a good message to young readers; that of being patient. Terri Kelleher's illustrations are lively and colorful and they make the story captivating to children. The illustrations breathe life into the characters and the scenes and make them palpable to readers. It is a good story for reading aloud and for storytelling sessions in classrooms and school libraries. This story will encourage children not to give up and to be patient when it comes to achieving things in life. It is also a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids.
