Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown has Mr. Tiger, a very civilized animal from the city,  deciding that he needs to cut loose a bit.  Little by little he goes WILD!  Beautifully illustrated animals throughout the book look on and even join in Mr. Tiger's journey of self exploration.  

Our next Caldecott contender is all about a red knitted hat in Red Hat by Lita Judge.  Like her previous book Red Sled, a slew of adorable animal characters try on the red hat but it can only fit one special head.  An adorable story beautifully illustrated with a vibrant red color.  If you enjoyed Klassen's book, This is Not My Hat, you will love this one.
