Like Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry—Really, Really Angry, this book offers families a perfect opportunity to openly discuss emotions and behavior.

Meet Betty, a gorilla. She wants to eat a banana, but . . . try as she might, she can’t open it! Poor Betty—she just can't cope, and her frustration quickly becomes a great BIG tantrum. She cries and sniffles, kicks and screams. Luckily, Mr. Toucan is at hand to peel the banana and help Betty calm down. But what will happen when Betty spots another banana?

Both preschoolers and parents will laugh out loud at this simple, utterly hilarious picture book about tantrums.

From the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—A young gorilla is unable to open a banana she wants to eat and proceeds to cry, kick, sniffle, and scream about it. A calm Mr. Toucan arrives to help, but that only angers Betty more; she wants to peel the fruit herself. As she finally prepares to savor her snack, it breaks, resulting in yet another massive freak out. Several times Mr. Toucan reminds Betty that her behavior is unnecessary, and Betty is ultimately able to enjoy her banana. Naturally, she promptly stumbles upon another on the very last page, leaving readers to imagine Betty going bananas all over again. The banana-print end papers set the tone for the book. Black, white, pink, and red are the only other colors used, so the bright, classic yellow stands out and contrasts nicely with Betty's black fur. The texture and style of the graphite pencil illustrations are reminiscent of children's crayon drawings, and the repetition and silliness of Betty's dramatic behavior allow for reader participation and discussion. A lively companion to Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry... (Scholastic, 2004).—Whitney LeBlanc, Staten Island Academy, NY
