"Laura Dockrill’s brilliantly quirky, friendly text is as full of personality as her books for older readers"

Cookie is very angry, and she’d prefer it if you just went away. Even opening the book and letting the light in is unacceptable, quite honestly. Yet, it turns out that Angry Cookie has a bit of a bad day, beginning with her flat mate Barbra the Cactus’ terrible recorder playing, then running out of her favourite toothpaste... But perhaps there’s something to be said for friendship, after she’s been a really moany mongoose... Laura Dockrill’s brilliantly quirky, friendly text is as full of personality as her books for older readers, and little ones will definitely identify with Angry Cookie. It’s a perfect book for talking about emotions, and has a lovely message about sticking around for your friends and loved ones, no matter how moody they are.
