A brilliant wheeze for little tantrum-inclined people! Tiny Tantrum has a big problem. She’s happy when she’s getting her own way, but ‘you try telling Tiny that she has to wash her hair, or tidy up, or go to bed, and she’ll scream, ‘That’s not fair!’ A series of big, friendly monsters – purple, green, yellow and stripy – use psychology on our Tiny, and she learns the secret: that tantrums are a waste of time, and she’s much better off having fun. The rhymes are jolly and there is even a song at the end that one can make up a special tune to. The text abounds with the sort of words that kids adore, such as ‘bum’ and ‘bottom’, ‘snot’ and ‘stinky’ and the illustrations show us smiley monsters who turn the tables on Tiny and want to bounce all night when she is tired and wants to sleep. Now she must use psychology on them! It’s all good fun, and the text and pictures are a combination that shapes the point nicely. Parents may want to take note and become happy, smiley, monsters with a good line in psychology!
