Energetic, expressive, childlike art (with one shot of a gratuitous, giggle-inducing cookie butt) pairs well with the goofy-but-sincere plot, and it’s sure to keep young audiences engaged…An entertaining approach to helping children work through their emotions.
The exhortations from the grumpy lump that is Angry Cookie beg for overly dramatic readings and will have any youngster in stitches; the illustrations by Maria Karipidou are a giggle-worthy complement. Taken together, it’s the recipe for an entertaining story with a wonderful message about fidelity and friendship.
Dockrill’s laugh-out-loud book about a cookie that really just needs to vent a little, talk out their frustrations, is a brilliant lesson on the power of recognizing and releasing your feelings. Also very tasty-looking.
