CHICAGO (WLS) -- A local author has created a new book called "Balloons for Tiger."
It's aimed at helping children through what can be a very difficult time losing a pet.
Author Lori Orlinsky and Elliott Serrano from the Anti-Cruelty Society joined ABC7 Tuesday to talk about the book, including the inspiration for the book and how parents can help children through the loss of a pet.
"Balloons for Tiger" is available now and part of the proceeds go to the Anti-Cruelty Society.
