When a little girl starts to ponder her situation, having been sat down in her "time out chair" in a corner by her mother for being "wild", she imagines what she could do if she really was a wild creature like a lion with an enormous roar and flowing mane, or a fierce black bear with teeth flashing. She thinks of how those wild beasts behave and how different they are from herself. It's a truly charming book with illustrations look something like Maurice Sendak's "Where The Wild Things Are". I'm tempted to say the book is too cute for kids because I enjoyed it so much. But I'm sure the little ones in your house will get the message about what it means to be wild.
