Any parent of a young child knows that the best way to distract a child from his bad temper is to re-direct his attention to something humorous. Lichtenheld demonstrates just how this works in a series of double-spread cartoons depicting a variety of situations that might cause a rotten mood. The big, bold and broadly comic style is well-suited to the tone of the text and has solid child appeal.show more
