Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Harris (Mail Harry to the Moon!, Reviews, Apr. 28) and Bang (When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry) are so simpatico that it's almost surprising that no one thought of bringing them together sooner. Their hero is sulking after some serial misbehaving-evoked via vibrant collages of photos and cut paper-when Mommy's disciplining finally pushes him to an act of provocative communication. Bang portrays Leo as almost demonic, his flushed face ballooning above his tiny body as the titular words blast out of his mouth. Instantly mortified-his too-large head suddenly makes him seem awkward and vulnerable-he now has a new problem: Could the words he spoke in anger negate Mommy's love for him? Harris is not (and never has been) interested in portraying Stepford families. When Leo weakly points out that, after all, Mommy expressed a hatred of broccoli at dinner the night before, she loses it. "BROCCOLI?"-Bang punctuates the already expressive typography with photos of the vegetable-"I am NOT broccoli! You are NOT broccoli!" But this breach is not, of course, irreparable, and the way Mommy brings it off is so humane, sensible and, yes, replicable, that booksellers might actually want to consider filing copies of this book in the parenting section. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)

Leo makes a great parallel to Sophie of When Sophie Gets Angry..." He's another youngster who loses control; young readers should find reassurance in the story. When his mommy seems to say "no" to every mischievous thing Leo does, Leo goes to his room, where he draws an angry Mommy on the wall, to her dismay. He finally loses it, shouting that he hates "no" and "I HATE YOU!" He wants to stuff the shocking words back, but it is too late. His mother, overwhelmed, tries to show him that those words can make people feel "really bad!" Leo fears that she could hate him for saying them, but she says she could never hate him, because she loves him. All ends with hugs and happiness. Bang uses colors and shapes to load her visual story with emotion. The jacket sets the yellow-orange title against an angular dark-purple scribble and adds both a wide-mouth and a contrite Leo for emphasis. Lifting the jacket reveals a contrasting cover. Photoshop manipulation incorporates paper cutouts and photographs as well as words in different sizes, colors and shapes. A double page of purple with all upper case letters and a face dominated by an open mouth is almost audible. The final scene of reconciliation exudes peace and love. Check the contrasting end papers.

PreS-Gr 1

In this companion to When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry... (Scholastic, 1999), Harris's wisdom and sense of humor regarding early childhood behavior complement Bang's depictions of a little boy's strong emotions. Vivid colors, scanned and digitally manipulated paper cutouts and photographs, and fonts of varied sizes portray the tension between a preoccupied mother and her bored youngster. Leo rolls tomatoes in the house until they burst, drops string beans into the fish bowl, and squeezes toothpaste all over the toilet, collecting maternal "no's" as he goes. Ultimately pushed off the page by a fiery, life-size negation, the boy enters his bedroom, declares it a no-rule zone, and takes out his frustration by coloring a frowning mommy on his wall. The confrontation builds as she ignores his dictate, and Leo utters the fateful phrase. The tiny boy in the next spread is a picture of remorse and regret. The denouement offers a realistic and loving dialogue that should be required reading in parenting and anger-management classes. Mom takes a deep breath, eventually gets a grip, and together they talk about when it is and isn't acceptable to verbalize this four-letter word. Children will delight in the realism of the collage elements (cloud-covered sheets, shaggy stuffed animals, exploding broccoli spears) and relate to the intensity of the scenes in which Leo struggles with his rage and lack of power. It may dawn on parents that sometimes playing is better than getting another thing done.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
The H-word gets the full attention of two of picture-book literature's finest emotional plumbers. When Leo's naughty behavior earns him "no" after "no" from his mother, the boy stalks off to his room, "where nobody can say no!" A quick (and unflattering) drawing of Mommy on the wall, however, demonstrates that she can say no wherever she likes. Furious, Leo bursts out with the three dreaded words: "I hate you!" he screams, his giant mouth and the angry red-and-yellow block letters dominating the page. Immediately he wishes he could take it back, but though Mommy is disappointed in him, a healing discussion about the difference between broccoli and people ensues. Bang utilizes the same shock of colors and shapes she employed in When Sophie Gets Angry . . . Really, Really Angry (2000), with some mixed media as well, to great emotional effect. When Leo shouts, his anger is palpable-as is his instant regret. Harris's patient take on a difficult topic will make this must-have reading for many a parent and child. (Picture book. 4-8)

    Leo is so tired of Mommy's NOs that he retreats to his room just to be in a no NO zone. He quickly finds that there's no such thing when Mommy walks in and tosses yet another NO Leo's way. This is when Leo decides to throw his own verbal weapon at Mommy. <BR/><BR/>This is a book all kids can relate to, as it puts anger, temper, fear, and doubt on display. Facing off with overwhelming emotion can be a challenge, and it's comforting for kids to know that others find the struggle just as difficult. <BR/><BR/>The illustrations, which blend paper cutouts and photographs, are just as kid-friendly as the text. They include lots of movement and color to liven things up. Simple line meets rich texture on each page and words are uniquely highlighted throughout the book. <BR/><BR/>This is a book that will stay on my shelf for a lot of re-reading and enjoyment.
