5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect storm of a 3-year old's tantrum 7 Dec 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Angry Arthur is a beautifully perceptive observation of a 3-year old boy's tantrum when told to turn off the TV and go to bed. He progresses from destroying his house and street to a shattering "universe quake", despite attempts to soothe him by various loved ones. When he eventually does calm down, he has no recollection of what triggered the episode in the first place. I was lucky enough to happen upon this book in the library when my son was three. We both loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars angry arthur 15 Mar 2009
I bought this for my son when he was three, and read it to him often. He's now in his twenties and asks where the book has gone so much, as it has memories for him (probably because he recognized the feelings it describes so well), that I bought him a new copy.He loves it!

4.0 out of 5 stars My sometimes angy six year old enjoyed it 10 Jan 2010
By Rachel
My six year old son who often gets angry enjoys the story and is amazed at the impact of Arthur's anger. It helps to promote some discussion with him about anger.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book! 11 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work with children with behavioural difficulties- many having problems managing their anger. I bought this book last week and have used it every day this week. Children (and adults too!) love it! The story is ver simple but the pictures provide a wealth of prompts for discussion. How do you know Arthur is angry (by his face, body , folded arms, clenched fists)- How do you feel when you get angry?
Children also love the detailed pictures of the trail of destruction Arthur leaves in his wake.i love the one of his granny sitting on a rocking chair, whizzing through space with a space helmet on, while knitting!
This little book was worth every penny. Showed it to a colleague today,who loved it so much I gave it to her and am just about to buy another copy.
Buy this book- it's great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book review 14 Nov 2010
This is an excellent book as a starting point in discussing the feeling of Anger with the reluctant conversationist. The manner in which the story is told lends itself to a natural flow of talk with the child,allowing the child to come out with examples of his own situations where h has felt angry.

4.0 out of 5 stars No more rages! 9 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book after reading somewhere that it can help start a discussion with your child if they are having difficulties. My son was flying into blind rages (he was 6 at the time) both at home and school. We read this book together and it seemed to help him open up. At the end he even said that Arthur was just like him (the way he feels sometimes). We discussed how this rage feels like to him and how to try and stop it before it gets out of control. We also talked about him taking up a hobby, which he has done. Thanks to this book my son is now at Karate twice a week and doing very well at karate, school and home! What more could a parent want? My son is now much happier and so are we!
