Whether you are grumpy, angry, or mad, there is no place better than home with your loved ones.

Angus woke up mad and knew today was not his day. His dachshund, Clive, walked too slowly. His canary, Pennycake, was too loud. And to top it off, his breakfast pancakes were way too skinny.

Angus was in a bad mood, and he decided to run away. He walked two blocks, three blocks, five blocks, then suddenly everything seemed scary and dark. When his mother found Angus, he realized he was better off with her and at home.

The touching story by Patrick Downes and the bold illustrations by Boris Kulikov will comfort young children. It will show them that even when they are angry or frustrated or dealing with other emotions, everything is going to be all right.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Max’s Words

*“Imaginative, softly colored illustrations.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Kulikov’s clever illustrations feature Max’s hundreds of words in different colors and fonts, sprinkled across the pages like confetti.” —Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Boy Who Cried Wolf

“[Kulikov] uses a variety of perspectives, a couple of which almost put the boy in the reader’s lap, and his watercolor-and-gouache artwork teases many laughs.” —Booklist
