Book Review | Mr. Tiger Goes Wild

I homeschool my three children who are ages 6, 7 and 8. We have a daily story time and enjoy reading a wide variety of picture books together. Peter Brown is one of their favorite children’s book authors who has written Creepy Carrots! and Children Make Terrible Pets. Therefore, we were excited to read the author’s latest title, Mr. Tiger Goes Wild. Recommended for ages 3-6, my daughter, Hannah, who just turned seven years old was able to read the story aloud to the group as it is written in concise sentences geared towards younger readers.
My three “wild” ones were delighted to see how the story turns out when the main character, Mr. Tiger decides he is done being proper and wants to take a walk on the wild side. The simple and engaging text was captivating for my six year old son who has declared Mr. Tiger to be “awesome” as he goes on the adventure of a lifetime. What Mr. Tiger ultimately learns is that it can become very lonely living the wild life if you are doing it alone and without your beloved friends and home. Mr. Tiger is able to teach his friends about being confident enough to live a life “free to be himself” as they too learn the joys of being “wild”.
My eight year old son has a passion for the arts and he really appreciated the lovely watercolor gouache, India ink and pencil illustrations by this author and Caldecott Honor award-winning illustrator. I found the illustrations to be absolutely stunning as is the norm for this author and illustrator.
