Mr. Tiger is tired of being proper and boring and just like everyone else was around him. All Mr. Tiger wanted to do was loosen up and have some fun, he wanted to be wild and that is exactly what he tried to do. He became wild and making his friends from the city upset and one day went a little too far when his friends asked him to go be wild in the wilderness. Mr. Tiger loved the idea and ran off to go be wild in the wilderness. Eventually he became bored and lonely. He returned to the city and noticed things were starting to change. Mr. Tiger and everyone else in the city was able to be themselves in the end. This is a good book giving examples for children that they can be who they are and still fit in and it is okay to be yourself and not always perfect and proper or like everybody else.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the theme of being yourself. I think this would be a good read aloud for children of the younger grades. Otherwise, it may be a little young.

Mr. tiger who is fed up with being so proper that he goes wild. He was bored with being proper. He wanted to be wild. Mr. Tiger became wild and wilder each day.He friends told him if he is wild he must go live in the wild jungle. Mr. Tiger realized that he missed his friends, the city and his home. He found that things were starting to become themselves. He was much happier and so was everyone else. ( )

A story about a tiger who decides to be himself, despite the objection of others. As Mr. Tiger becomes his authentic self, the illustrations become more bright/vivid.

Love this! Hawaiian shirt that shows your chest hair = middle ground between Victorian repression and roaring at trees naked, and also this book gets that you're a tiger. Nice for rambunctious but sweethearted three-year-olds. ( )
