About the book

[insert star] "Well-pitched for preschoolers just learning social skills . . . excellent for family reading, classrooms and storytimes." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review


Who knows the best way to be mad? Bear stomps. Hare hops. Bobcat screams. Mouse? He just can't get it right. But when he finds the way that works for him--still and quiet--he discovers that his own way might be the best of all. Linda Urban's story about self-expression is both sweet and sly, and Henry Cole's cast of animal friends is simply irresistible.
