Mr. Tiger Goes Wild

Mr. Tiger is all prim and proper, until he doesn’t want to be. Leaving civilized behaviour 9780316200639.jpgbehind, Mr. Tiger embraces his natural self for a while. But he misses some of the things back home in the city. He returns to find a few changes.

Peter Brown‘s stellar artwork alone will entertain the young reader, who could page through this book as if it were wordless and still get the gist. For those of us who love words, those meld nicely with the illustrations, and the word placement on the pages gives that little bit extra, making Mr. Tiger Goes Wild a standout.
