Angry Arthur


This is a story about Arthur who got very angry when he was not allowed TV.


The focus on Arthur’s feelings of anger and frustration is important in that it facilitates the exploration of difficult emotions, particularly significant in that it focuses on a young boy’s emotions. The book does not confine or teach a lesson about anger, but instead allows Arthur, and the reader, to explore this emotion and the interplay between text and image encourages the reader to think about this too.
