Description
Who among us hasn't encountered that force of nature called "a fit"? A best-selling author and illustrator depict a toddler's tantrum in all its horror and hilarity.
Finn likes peaches. Usually. But not today. Today Finn doesn t like
anything. Uh-oh. Is Finn going to throw a fit? Author David Elliott
directs the event with wit, warmth, and appropriate wariness, while
illustrator Timothy Basil Ering's energy and whimsy match this tantrum
turn for turn. At once empathetic and uproariously funny, this picture
book speaks directly to anyone (young or old) who has ever had or
tried to contain a real earth-quaking, ground-shaking, full-on fit.
