That Makes Me Mad!

by Steven Kroll
Illustrated by Christine Davenier

Published by SeaStar Books, 2002
32 pages
ISBN: 1-58717-183-X

Ages 4 - 8

Nina gives voice to the frustrations of childhood, as she lists the things that make her mad. They include being talked about like she's not even there, trying very hard and still not succeeding, and being blamed for something not her fault. Each double-page spread states something that makes Nina angry, and then gives a brief, specific example of such an instance. She concludes by acknowledging "it makes me feel better when you let me tell you how angry I am!" Originally published with the art of Hilary Knight (Pantheon, 1976), this new edition features Davenier's cartoon-like watercolor illustrations. CCBC categories: New Edition Of Old Favorites; Picture Books For Younger Children; Understanding Oneself And Others.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
