“El señor tigre se vuelve salvaje” Review

The Spanish picture book “El señor tigre se vuelve salvaje” by Peter Brown was a fun reading experience! Ezra loves animals and the jungle! He kept pointing at everything that was familiar to him. The illustrations are so amazing and creative–made out of Chinese Ink! It is definitely an engaging book. This book encourages children that it is ok to be different and not do what the rest of the world does.

This makes me think of our lives as Christians. Many times our values do not align with the rest of the world. It can be hard and frustrating, but all it takes is to be brave, pray and let the Lord guide you. By being you, being true to who you really are, holding to your values and stand up for what is right, you motivate others to do the same. You get to be the light, by bringing joy, kindness, and love to those around you–representing Jesus Christ everywhere you go.

We discovered this amazing book at the Miramar Library in South Florida. It was brand new to their Spanish book collection. Is perfect for 4-7 years old, but my two year old definitely enjoyed it.


Mr. Tiger is not happy with his prim and proper life. He decides it’s time to go a little wild. Since his friends and neighbors do not approve, he finds a place where he can truly be himself. Children will love seeing where he ends up.

It can be purchased Here. 


Peter Brown writes and illustrates books for young whippersnappers. He grew up in Hopewell, New Jersey, where he spent his time imagining and drawing silly characters. He studied Life Lessons at the School of Hard Knocks, and then got his B.F.A. in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

After college Peter moved to Brooklyn, New York and spent several years painting backgrounds for animated TV shows. And then in 2003 he got a book deal to write and illustrate his first picture book FLIGHT OF THE DODO, which is a story that involves bird poop…in case you’re into that kind of thing. Since then he’s written and illustrated three more picture books, and illustrated several other books for young whippersnappers. His books have been adapted into plays and animated short films, they have been translated into a dozen languages, and they include the 2010 E.B. White award winner, Children’s Choice Award winner, and New York Times bestselling books THE CURIOUS GARDEN.
