When Simon gets mad, he gets REALLY mad. So mad that big, bad, angry beasts appear. At first Simon loves having the beasts around to help scare off anyone who upsets him, but over time he realizes that no one wants to be around him or the beasts. This makes Simon sad, so he decides to try to still his mind and practice being calm. And the beasts disappear!

Featuring colorful and expressive illustrations, this insightful book helps children ages 4–8 learn how to handle their anger. A guide for parents and teachers in the back of the book features strategies for talking to children about their emotions along with various exercises they can use to cope with anger.


"When Simon gets angry, he shouts and rages, and soon his temper takes the shape of a terrible lion, a rampaging rhino, and a dangerous dragon. With awesome, awful creatures at his back, Simon feels powerful—for a while, anyway. An incredible tool for children, parents, and educators, Simon’s story is a creative visual representation and guide for children, encouraging the recognition of feelings and equipping kids with positive strategies for managing anger in a constructive way.”—Foreword Reviews
