How to Tame a Tiger (Cub)
4 February 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What do you do when your poker winnings include a grubby urchin, instead of all the money you had hoped to collect from the man who just killed your latest employer?

This urchin isn't just any boy; he's a stubborn, uneducated. motherless pup willing to tackle all jobs that promise to keep his Father in Poker funds. And Paladin is entitled to all the boy's earnings over the next 30 days.

Everyone figures Paladin will find his new charge simply too much of a handful and thus waste no time hitting the trail with whatever cash he's managed to win. But when Paladin appears to be actually civilizing the lad, "Daddy" doesn't like it at all -- and immediately shows his intense displeasure.

Eventually, the boy has a bevy of new "Guardians" in his life, but the local school teacher is still presented with Paladin's "card" as a parting gift!
