When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry

by Molly Bang, and published by Scholastic



Sophie's indignation over being required to share a favorite toy with her sister leads her on a lonely internal journey from anger to equilibrium.

"Bang's use of color, line and visual onomatopoeia combine with a deceptively simple text to create a visually stunning color of a child's journey through a temper tantrum and back to the warmth of her family."
