Arthur is having a terrible day. We don’t know why this is, but his family are all getting the brunt of his stomping, huffing and roaring temper tantrum, so he decides he must run away. Taking his little suitcase, he runs ‘very nearly to the end of the garden’. Hunger intervenes, so he decides to go home, but what is this? A giant forest has appeared between him and the back door, and this he must go through. Still feeling very cross, he starts out nervously. Strange noises turn out to be a bear, an elephant, and a lion, all of whom are terribly cross too, and while they start out stomping and huffing and roaring, they all find that dancing, playing music, and singing are lots more fun. By the time they get through the forest, they are all happy again, and Arthur finds that his family haven’t even realised he’s been gone. A lovely tale about a child who learns the positives out of life are much better than the negatives ever can be. The artwork is super, flat coloured backgrounds with figures with black eyes and mouths, to indicate the blackness of temper. Great fun and very imaginative, with a good moral.
