Angry Cookie

Written by Laura Dockrill

Illustrated by Maria Karipidou

Angry Cookie Synopsis

Prepare to fall absolutely in love with this irresistible cookie, crumbly chocolate chips and all. 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 is a 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.

Angry Cookie Press Reviews

[...] terrific fun, with bright colours and plenty of anthropomorphised food. * Carousel * Angry Cookie is a funny, entertaining, story with a constructive message about friendship. * Armadillo * [...] a regular read at bedtime from now on! * Kelly Allen Writer * Packed full of humour [...] * Mini Travellers blog * It's such a lovely book for helping children realise that their friends might be a bit miserable or angry at times but it's important to still be their friend! * MeHimTheDogAndTheBaby * Adorable * Mummy Mishaps * I felt like the book touches perfectly on mental health for children. How many small negatives build to make you feel like the world has turned against you, but how our attitude and strength can turn this into a positive. We loved it so much and I think it will be a regular read at bedtime from now on! * Kelly Allen Writer * So funny and winning. The illustrations had my girls in fits of giggles. * Two In A Teepee * #BookOfTheYear * The Book Sniffer * I've been waiting to get hold of it ever since I saw the initial press release [...] I can't wait to read this tonight * Ultimate Girl Gang * [...] an interactive, laugh-a-minute story and you won't be able to help but love this angry little biscuit * PictureBooksBlogger * [...] a perfect book for talking about emotions, and has a lovely message about sticking around for your friends and loved ones, no matter how moody they are. * BookTrust * With playful illustrations by Maria Karipidou, Dockrill's debut picture book is bright and entertaining and delivers an important message. * Mail on Sunday * The book superbly evokes the roots of a child's anger - insecurity, frustration, feeling unheard - and the realisation that the reader will listen, even when the Cookie is a meanie moody moany mongoose . * The Guardian *
