A thought-provoking illustrated storybook in which the forest animals discover that anger doesn't always have to be angry In ten thoughtful, philosophical, absurd tales by master storyteller Toon Tellegen, the forest animals-from squirrel to scarab beetle-spend their days as friends do, with birthday parties, writing letters, visiting, dancing, or sometimes all alone. Each day brings emotions that are always worth exploring, although not always easy, and each story reveals new layers through the expressive, touching and funny illustrations of Marc Boutavant.

This wry and nuanced collection of stories gently shows that anger, in all its shapes and sizes, is a natural, necessary and often misunderstood emotion.

Reviews for No One Is Angry Today

A challenging exercise in decoding strong human emotions - but worth the effort. * Kirkus Reviews * Powerful messages arise, as when, while considering what a firebelly toad's anger might feel like, a tortoise offers: Or it might be something heavy.... so heavy nobody can lift it. The illustrations play with contrasts and shadows, complementing the moody atmosphere. * Foreword Magazine *
