Review: Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown

Who hasn't had the urge to go WILD sometimes? I knew this book was destined for my book shelf when I saw the beautifully illustrated cover.  Mr. Tiger's fun expression begs the reader to find out how this properly dressed tiger is going to go wild.

Mr. Tiger lives in a very proper town, where they dress in very proper clothes, walk on two proper legs and lead very proper and boring lives. So Mr. Tiger, who was "bored with always being so proper" got a "very wild idea." Starting with getting on "all fours", Mr. Tiger starts casting off his proper constraints and gets WILD! And he ROARS!

The town folk are not too happy with Mr. Tiger and tell him to kindly act wild in the wilderness.  Mr. Tiger says "What a magnificent idea!" 

Although he has lots of fun being wild and free, Mr. Tiger soon misses his friends, and the city.

He returns to find a surprise!

And this is where I will leave you hanging in suspense until you read this lovely book for yourself! ( is a happy ending!)

Mr. Tiger is a wonderful story that encourages all of us to be ourselves.  Then, and only then, are we truly happy.

Written and illustrated by Peter Brown, I love note placed on the end paper, About This Book.  It gives details about how the gorgeous illustrations were created, editing done by Alvinia Ling and the beautiful design by Patti Ann Harris and Peter Brown.
