When a little boy hears “no” from his mother one time too many, he feels his anger rising. It burns and builds, finally turning him into a giant dragon that destroys everything in its path. Nothing is safe: not toys or stuffed animals—not even Mom and Dad. But fortunately, a dragon’s fire doesn’t last forever. The simple, bold illustrations give shape to the power that emotions have to overwhelm and transform us, and vividly bring to life the angry dragon that lurks inside us all.

Thierry Robberecht and Philippe Goossens have created 15 books together, including three other books about Sam, and their work has been published in 13 countries. They both live in Brussels.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 2. A child's rage is given respectful acknowledgment in this Belgian import, in which the frustrating word no triggers a little boy's tantrum. Robberecht charts the familiar sequence of emotions in a frank, natural first-person voice, beginning with angry withdrawal ("Mom says I'm like a stone. I feel trapped inside that stone"). Rampaging fury ensues, during which the narrator visualizes himself as a "giant dragon that destroys everything in his path"--a phase that will appeal to children for its T. rex-like depictions of the transformed boy. Goossens' distinctly European, stylized artwork visually reproduces the intense emotions through dramatic shading and a palette flushed with ochres and oranges. Though this shares a therapeutic application with Molly Bang's award-winning When Sophie Gets Angry . . . Really, Really Angry (1999), Robberecht's approach simply reflects and legitimizes kids' feelings, while Bang's emphasizes forming a personal strategy for controlling outbursts. The books will benefit from being read side by side; both will open an avenue for discussing anger and its potentially self-destructive effects. Jennifer Mattson
