Are you bored with being sensible? Do you want to have more fun? Mr. Tiger knows exactly how you feel. Fed up with tea parties, top hats and talking about the weather, he astounds his friends when he decides to go... WILD. But does he go too far? After all, the wilderness can get pretty lonely.

Mr Tiger Goes Wild is a beautifully illustrated and brilliantly funny book from Caldecott Honor-winning artist Peter Brown that shows that there's a time and place for everything... even going wild. Peter Brown is also the creator of many other books including the fantastically funny My Teacher is a Monster! (No, I Am Not).

In the media

Although short on words, the glorious India ink and watercolour illustrations make this an enjoyable read.
The book is most assuredly an excellent starting point for discussions relating to being yourself, difference/divergence and acceptance for children in primary and even secondary schools.
This is an inspired book that is exquisitely illustrated and can easily lead to a discussion about being yourself and acceptance.
