Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, by Peter Brown

Peter Brown, the author and illustrator and recipient of a Caldecott Honor, describes his creative process and the artistic influences that shaped his picture book, Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, which is among School Library Journal’s best picture books of 2013. In this video, Peter Brown describes how he researched other artists’ techniques and designs to come up with inspiration for the beautiful illustrations in his story and how the creative process of writing and illustrating can work using storyboards and sketches. This is a great video that can be used with students as they work on arranging their own writing on a word wall or on a digital device using virtual “sentence strips.” Students can see how writing a story and illustrating it pulls it together and creates greater meaning and expression.
