No One Is Angry Today

By Toon Tellegen
Illustrated by Marc Boutavant

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.

  • Philosophical read-aloud for families and classrooms
  • Opens discussion about difficult emotions without moralising or patronising
  • Open-ended, nonjudgmental, a little bit absurd
