Mr. Tiger lived a perfectly proper life in a perfectly proper city and everything was perfectly fine . . . until the day he had a wonderfully wild idea! Why choose to stay in the stuffy city when there is a whole wide world of wilderness and wildness to explore? So Mr. Tiger bounds off on an adventure to discover where he really belongs.
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild shows us that there’s a time and place for everything. Even going wild.

“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 Reviews, starred review
“ . . . a gratifying parable about self-actualization . . . 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
“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
“With its skewed humor and untamed spirit this joyous exploration of quasi-reverse anthropomorphism will delight listeners again and again.”—Booklist, starred review
“This is a book made for storytime . . . Children, who get tired of grownups and their requests for proper behavior, will relate to the proud joy Mr. Tiger clearly feels when he is free to be wild, and also to his eventual feelings of loneliness. 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.”—Horn Book, starred review

Mr. Tiger Goes Wild is a wonderful children's book that has become one of my son's all time favorites. Besides the adorable illustration, we simply love the story line. The writing is easy enough for my toddler to understand, but the meaning is complex enough for a parent to want to read the book over and over again to his/her child. In this book, Mr. Tiger decides to go back to the wild after living so properly with his friends. Because he misses his friends, he decides to return. To his pleasant surprise, his friends decide to join him and become a little wild themselves. I love this book because it serves as a great reminder to be a little silly with my kids, to allow their imagination roam wild and let them be the children that they are meant to be.
