One of my favorite things about picture books is there are so many design elements in play, offering tons of potential for fun little wrinkles. Exhibit A: Mr. Tiger Goes Wild.
The awesomely illustrated book is about a tiger (Mr. Tiger) who is tired of being proper. He bucks social convention and sheds his suits to go au naturale. It's a fun and well-executed story and definitely a Caldecott frontrunner. If there is one thing that might put it over the top, it is this ingenious book design that playfully captures spirit of the book.
