About the BookThe latest book from a bestselling illustrator and Caldecott Honoree, featuring a very proper tiger who just wants to get a little wild. Bored with city life and the proper behavior it requires, Mr. Tiger has a wild idea that leads him to discover his true nature. Full color.
Book SynopsisAre you bored with being so proper?
Do you want to have more fun?
Mr. Tiger knows exactly how you feel. So he decides to go wild.
But does he go too far?
From Caldecott Honor artist Peter Brown comes a story that shows there's a time and place for everything...even going wild.
*"Readers who prefer the view from underneath the dinner table will find a kindred soul in Brown's brightly burning character who knows that the wilderness is always waiting, should the need arise."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
*"There's a lot to go wild for in this picture-book celebration of individuality and self-expression...Hooray for Mr. Tiger and his wild ways."--Kirkus, starred review
*"This "it's okay to be different" story stands out from other picture books on the topic thanks to Brown's delightfully clever illustrations and masterful compositions...Sure to be an instant read-aloud classic in classrooms and libraries."--School Library Journal, starred review
*"This is a book made for storytime, with its bold mixed-media illustrations that work almost like a storyboard moving left to right...The happy ending, almost a reverse of Where the Wild Things Are, includes everyone discovering the fun of being at least a little bit wild."--The Horn Book, starred review
*"With its skewed humor and untamed spirit this joyous exploration of quasi-reverse anthropomorphism will delight listeners again and again."--Booklist, starred review
"Peter Brown depicts his hero as a bright pop of orange...gleefully escaping to a Rousseau-like tableau of dense ferns, soaring palms and cascading waterfalls."--New York Times Book Review
