"Patterson conveys a rage that readers should find appalling and thrilling at the same time" (Publishers Weekly)
"This book is so brilliantly observed that it should be compulsory reading for all mothers who think they might have stopped seeing the funny side of an impossibly opinionated toddler . . . It is laugh-out-loud funny, particularly to all of those who have been there, and bound to become a classic" (Daisy Bridgewater Sunday Telegraph)

So she SHOUTS. Will she say sorry? Will her next day be better?
A great bedtime read for a tired child who's just had a long and irritable day. My son kept saying Bella was being naughty but seemed pleased at her apology at the end. It's a reassuring read, that parents never stop loving you, that bad days end, that you can always say sorry.
The childlike pictures match the narration wonderfully. Bella is a great character to start discussions about and it's also easy for an adult reader as well.
Bella is having a really bad day, that starts off when she shouts at her little brother Bob! Everything from then on in goes terribly wrong and Bella turns into a little nightmare shouting all day long about things. But every bad day has to come to an end sometime and with the magic word 'sorry', a hug from mum and a bedtime story, things really do start looking up for little Bella.
My Big Shouting Day has tons of humour that will have you laughing out loud throughout. There are moments when Bella is being a little naughty, I would look at my daughter and say "you wouldn't do things like that would you?" and she would say "no way" while having to think about it first. So it gave my daughter something to think about anyway! This is definitely one that will be read again and again!

Yep, pretty much sums up two/three/four year olds. And probably teenagers too. Makes me feel better even if the children are too busy tantruming to hear me read it.Published 15 months ago by A. J. Jay
