Put a Tiger In Your Tank

Once again, the author grabs the hearts and minds of the young with a delightful children’s story of a girl, a car, a filling station, and evangelism. Based on the old Esso gas slogan of yesteryear, Put a Tiger in Your Tank is the third book by Sally Breeze Green, completing a trilogy of children’s stories with deeper meanings. Her niece, Melissa Green, is again the illustrator.

All three stories came from her dream life of God awakening her in the night, saying, “Write this down.” “Tiger” was originally the topic of a sermon delivered during her years as a lay preacher in the Presbyterian tradition and later adapted as a children’s story now being offered by Christian Faith Publishing. Along with her first two books, Lo and Behold: A Christmas Story and Georgie! A Big Fish Tale, it is available on the internet at Amazon.com and bookstores everywhere.

Put a tiger in your tank was a slogan created in 1959 by Emery Smith, a young Chicago copywriter who had been briefed to produce a newspaper ad to boost sales of Esso Extra. The tiger wasn’t Smith’s invention. He’d first appeared as a mascot for Esso in Norway around the turn of the twentieth century.
