Product Description

Review

"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)

"An entertaining and beguiling antidote to tears and tantrums . . . It’s the perfect picture book for dealing with bad days and bad moods, and comes with a big reassuring hug at the end" (Lancashire Evening Post)

"The perfect book for dealing with bad days and bad moods" (Primary Times Ireland)

"This book will definitely make children laugh at Bella's outrageous antics" (Joy Court Reading Zone)

We saw My Big Shouting Day recently on the cbeebies bedtime story slot, read by Ben Bailey Smith (who was just absolutely amazing - so, so funny) and feel in love with this book. Any parent will identify with experiencing a day with a toddler like Bella, and any child will relate to the frustration of just feeling VERY SHOUTY and grumpy. A superb book - love it.

We were battling through the terrible twos when I spotted this book on Amazon. It is one of the best books Ive ever read. It seemed to help my little one to understand the fustration she feels and even see the funny side. I love the illustrations of cross disapproving faces in the supermarket and the mum with infinite patience. This book is good on any level. But I think it has a lovely underlying messages.

This is a lovely book. Bella has one of those grumpy days where she loses control and has melt-downs. I read it with my 10 year old grand daughter who is on the autistic spectrum and who has similar experiences to those in the book. She was completely involved, and wanted to read it all over again as soon as we'd finished. It's now a firm favourite. This is not however just for autistic children. Everyone has days like Bella's shouting day and all children will recognise it. I loved the story myself! I recommend it wholeheartedly.

This is an incredibly funny book and really made my children and us, their parents smile. I am sure this story will be very familiar to many households with children. The book really does make them think about their behaviour which comes as a strange shock to them at the end of the book as they recognise their own behaviour is remarkably similar to the protagonist in the story. This is very funny for all.

Oh my goodness, I think this was written just for my daughter, who doesn't know how NOT to shout! We simply adored this little book with it's fabulously bold, colourful illustrations and it's brilliant storyline that has a wonderful little message. I think this book is a must read for shouty little people everywhere!

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!

It does sound just like a small child talking. Bella's day starts badly and then nothing seems to be right - broken biscuits, cold bath water, someone paying attention to her little brother.

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.

I bought this for my 17 month old Daughter but to be honest i think its a bit old for her yet so she will probably enjoy it when she is more like 3.. i think its a great book i like the illustrations and i like the theme, its funny and cute and every parent will relate to a day of lots of shouting! Would definately buy for a present its a nice book.

this is a marvellous book - terrific illustrations that catch the interest of a small child (and of the adult reader, come to that). All the author's books are wonderfully observed and I have recommended the purchase of them to several other grannies.
