A Buddhist monastery in the Himayalas has a companion in its midsta Royal Bengal tiger named Dorje. But Dorje is unusual; he has no stripes. As the elder monk, Master Wu, begins to tell the tale of the unmarked cat, the other monks learn why Dorjes stripes have vanished.

Gently and sensitively told, the fictional Dorjes Stripes communicates the plight of the endangered Royal Bengal tiger through Dorjes experiences in the wild. Readers should be aware that a bit of eastern mysticism trickles into the story as Master Wu travels into Dorjes dreams to learn his background.

An end note provides additional facts on the endangerment of this species.

A quiet, simple book that animal lovers will enjoy.
