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!
