A Caldecott Honor Book

Charlotte Zolotow Award

"Bang's evocatively illustrated book suggests no quick fixes; she treats childhood emotions with respect." -- Publisher's Weekly

"Excellent." -- School Library Journal

"Bang captures the intensity of Sophie's feelings with strong, broadly brushed forms and colors: images of flames and a volcano; blue eyes glaring up from a red background that looks as if it's exploding; then harmonious, leafy greens and browns; and concluding scenes of domestic amity....Sophie finds a way to cope with her anger, quite laudably, without a helping adult hand." -- Kirkus Reviews
