Why doesn’t the squirrel get angry? How do the hippo and the rhino avoid getting angry? In twelve beautifully illustrated animal stories you are told about the different faces of anger. The hippo and the rhino quarrel about who should be the first to clear the way. But instead of getting angry, lots of nice things come to their minds which they can do together.
The squirrel and the ant split up because the ant is wild about the squirrel. But suddenly the animals’ anger is fumed away. And the squirrel still does not have an idea how to fall into a rage.
This book is suitable for readers over 9 years old.
