Parents Need to Know
What's the story?
Mr. Tiger's bored with being proper. He's unhappy in his neat suit and top hat, exchanging banalities with his primly dressed friends. One day, he gets a wild idea: He drops to all fours, happily oblivious to the neighbors' stares. He grows increasingly wild, leaping and roaring about, and finally sheds his clothes altogether. Mr. Tiger is gloriously happy, but his friends sternly advise him to take his wildness to a more appropriate setting: the wilderness. Mr. Tiger happily obliges...but after some time he grows lonely. He ventures back to the city and happily discovers things have changed for the better in his absence. Finally, Mr. Tiger feels free to be himself.
Is it any good?
