When is a mouse not a mouse? When he's a tiger of course! This funny story is all about being who you want to be!

This is a story about a mouse with BIG ideas. Mouse believes he is a tiger, and he convinces Fox, Raccoon, Snake, and Bird he's one, too! After all, Mouse can climb a tree like a tiger and hunt for his lunch, too. And not all tigers are big and have stripes. But when a real tiger shows up, can Mouse keep up his act? With hilarious text by Karl Newson and bright and vivid illustrations from Ross Collins, this uproariously funny, read-aloud picture book encourages children to use their imaginations and be who they want to be! Doesn't everyone want to be a tiger?

Raves & reviews:

* "Newson's fearless tone and Collins' humorous illustrations are a winning combination. The bold cartoons, set against bright, solid-colored backgrounds, are vibrant enough to be seen from the back of the classroom or storyhour room, and the expressions of each animal will definitely inspire rounds of giggles . . . This is one terrific book." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Mouse's overpowering self-confidence drives the humor behind this readaloud, and Collins' art, in thin crayon-like lines with watercolor, depicts with hilarity the wide-eyed astonishment of the other animals as Mouse convices them he really is a tiger."—BCCB
