Charlie Bumpers Vs. the Really Nice Gnome by Bill Harley
Charlie has looked forward to being in the fourth-grade play, but is not at all happy when Mrs. Burke assigns him the role of the Nice Gnome. (catalog summary)
Once there were three little monsters who were oh-so-bad but could not agree on who was the absolute worst! In an attempt to settle the argument once and for all, they start building The Monster's Monster.
"Everyone was perfectly fine with the way things were. Everyone but Mr. Tiger."
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild takes on proper behavior and tears it to shreds. At the beginning of Peter Brown's picture book, four-legged animals walk stiffly upright, wear suits, dresses, top hats, and bonnets. Elephants, bears, and deer all have perfect posture. Every house on the block looks exactly the same, and our striped protagonist is sick of it.
