My Big Shouting Day




The perfect book for dealing with bad days and bad moods, with a reassuring hug of an ending

“Yesterday I woke up and Bob was crawling around MY ROOM, licking MY JEWELLERY, so I shouted GET OUT OF MY ROOM! and that was the start of MY BIG SHOUTING DAY…” Bella is having one of those days – her biscuit is broken, she has a hurting foot and ballet is TOOOO itchy for words. All she can do is shout! But by the end of the day, when she’s all tired out from being shouty, Bella knows there’s one magic word and one magic mummy to make things better again…

Praise for My Big Shouting Day

“Patterson conveys a rage that readers should find appalling and thrilling at the same time”

Publishers Weekly

“This book is so brilliantly observed that it should be compulsory reading for all mothers who think they might have stopped seeing the funny side of an impossibly opinionated toddler . . . It is laugh-out-loud funny, particularly to all of those who have been there, and bound to become a classic”

Daisy Bridgewater, Sunday Telegraph

“An entertaining and beguiling antidote to tears and tantrums . . . It’s the perfect picture book for dealing with bad days and bad moods, and comes with a big reassuring hug at the end”

Lancashire Evening Post

“The perfect book for dealing with bad days and bad moods”
