(The 2013 Cybils Award Winning) Mr. Tiger Goes Wild
Mr. Tiger lives in a very proper world, with top hats and everything, and everyone is just fine with the way things are, thank you very much. Except for Mr. Tiger. Mr. Tiger is bored. He wants to have some fun. One day he decides he will be WILD! As Mr. Tiger gets wilder, and wilder, his friends find him more and more peculiar! They finally tell him, "If you must act so wild, kindly do so in the wilderness!" Mr. Tiger's response? "What a magnificent idea!" and off the jungle he runs, to run through fields, climb trees, swim in the river, and ROAR! But Mr. Tiger is a bit lonely. He misses his friends in the city, so he decides to go back, and finds that things have changed a little since he left... This is a heart warming book about being yourself!
