My Big Shouting Day
Publisher: Jonathan Cape
When Bella wakes up, her little brother Bob is licking her jewellery. This puts her in a bad mood, so she shouts and complains all day.
She doesn’t like her breakfast or her shoes. Her biscuit breaks and she doesn’t want to play nicely with Sasha. Ballet is itchy, her peas are too hot and her bath is too cold. She doesn’t want a story and she certainly doesn’t want to go to bed! But Mum gives her a kiss and a cuddle, and reads Bella her favourite bedtime story anyway and at last Bella says 'sorry' for her big shouting day.
Funny and well-observed, with big bold illustrations and telling facial expressions, My Big Shouting Day is ideal for classroom use.
