What makes Nina mad? Well, just the kinds of things that would make any kid mad—Sometimes you talk about me like I'm not even there...When I want you fast and it takes you forever...When it's my turn to talk and nobody listens...that makes me mad!

In this spirited portrait of daily life through the eyes of a child, Steven Kroll reveals precisely what drives children crazy. First published in 1976, these vignettes still resonate with profound humor and emotional truth while Christine Davenier's all-new illustrations overflow with buoyant energy and expression. Here is an ideal book for parents and children to share-for pure pleasure or for exploring emotions and family love.
