Kate DiCamillo lived in the South of the USA for much of her childhood and studied at the University of Florida. She writes for children and adults and is the author of the highly acclaimed novel Because of Winn-Dixie. She says of this book, "Rob Horton showed up in a short story I was writing and hung around for weeks afterwards. Finally I said to him, 'What in the world do you want?' And he said, 'I know where there's a tiger.' Like Sistine, I said one word back to him, 'Where?' The Tiger Rising is how Rob Horton answered me."
