    "While this is a funny, borderline blasphemous coming-of-age satire relating to the life of Jesus Christ, this has nothing to do with animals, and rather refers to Jesus' career as a shepherd. This did not meet my needs, but I did enjoy it."

I feel like it's a simple story that subtly teaches nonconformity. People can take that message as drastic as they choose, but the general principle isn't bad and not all kids are going to be queued into that anyways, just the fun story of Mr. Tiger who decides to do things differently."

A huge, monstrous deception that highlights our immense collective naivety and need to fervently believe in something pure and altruistic? After all that is how the myriads sects and confessions thrive."
