The Tiger Who Would Be King

What happens when a tiger wakes up and decides he wants to be king of the beasts? This 9781592701827.jpganti-war fable by James Thurber explores the worst-case scenario where animals fight until they aren’t quite sure what they are fighting about. “Moral: You can’t very well be king of beasts if there aren’t any.” JooHee Yoon illustrates The Tiger Who Would Be King in vivid greens and reds that show the futility of war beautifully.
