Summary from Fat Fox Books
he Me Me Me’s are a unique collection of characters who explore the ups and downs of emotions that every child can relate to. This exceptional series will take you on adventures to the world of the Me Me Me’s and beyond – full of excitement, fun and an understanding into the different emotions we experience in the most imaginative way. 

The first in this series is all about the little red character of Angry Me who struggles to contain his anger. But Mellow Yellow – the constant voice of calm in the series – reassures and guides, reminding Angry Me that he is never alone – there is always a friend to listen and help.

Nayu's thoughts
This is a fantastic tale of exactly what being angry entails for a child, the being grumpy side of anger, how anything not going according to plan can increase the anger, as well as the consequences of anger, which kind of hurt the person who's angry the most. I thought it was charming how the anger fizzled out – I know it will help readers of all ages work on any anger issues they have in a way that's easy to relate to.
