OH NO! Barbra the cactus won’t stop playing her recorder, the yummy strawberry toothpaste has run out, and now – to top it all off – Cookie has to have his hair cut! Which all makes for one VERY ANGRY little cookie…

But perhaps you, the reader, can find a way to turn his grumpy frown upside down? This wildly inventive, interactive, laugh-out-loud tale brings Laura Dockrill’s one-of-a-kind voice and Maria Karipidou’s hilarious illustrations to the Walker list.

New one review witch 2017

Cookie isn’t happy that you are reading his book. As you open the first page he is asleep, but then you wake him up by making his room too bright. He wants you to stop being nosy and to close the book again, but alas you carry on reading. He does warn you about how angry he is and that you should leave him alone as there is nothing you can do to cheer him up – or is there!

He tells you all about why he is an Angry Cookie, and believe me if someone kept on playing the recorder over and over again I’d be angry too – can’t stand the sound of it.

The book is a lot of fun. Firstly we have a cookie talking, but not just that, a cookie that has his own home, oh and is angry too. What isn’t there to like.

The text is written in speech bubbles, this helps to make a child understand that Cookie is talking to the reader, to them. The illustrations are also very enjoyable and entertaining to look at. The faces that Cookie pulls because he’s angry are very amusing.

Overall Angry Cookie will give children a good laugh and have them giggling along. They will also be glad to see that Cookie just needs a friend and that they can be his friend. Brilliantly written, this is a book that I can see being adored and read over and over again.
