The Day No One was Angry

By Toon Tellegen
Illustrated by Marc Boutavant

Twelve stunningly illustrated, poetic, and funny stories about grumpy animals from an internationally acclaimed Dutch writer and a hugely popular French illustrator.

In 12 short chapters, we see different animals in various states of anger. Some try to understand their anger, some try to tame it, while others let their anger overwhelm them. These stories are funny and wry, but also offer a gently profound reflection of the nature of human emotions. Marc Boutavant’s delicate, stunning full colour illustrations put the reader in the heart of the forest, surrounded by endearingly grumpy animals. This book is a beautifully produced hardback which would make the perfect gift for older children as well as adults.

  • A storybook for readng aloud or alone
  • Equally suitable as a gift for any age (including teenagers and adults) or for use in classrooms
  • Lightly told stories featuring emotions, friendship, determination and humour
