‘Kitamura is one of the world’s
most original and stylish children’s illustrators.’ SUNDAY TIMES
Arthur wants to stay up late and watch TV, and when his mum says no, Arthur gets very angry. His anger becomes a storm cloud, a hurricane, an earthquake that has shockwaves in space. What will help Arthur calm down?
The original anger management book, Angry Arthur has been helping frustrated children and exasperated parents for almost 40 years!


"The powerful economy of Hiawyn Oram's text is brilliantly interpreted by Satoshi Kitamura's mischievously detailed illustrations."

"I’d like to have written or illustrated a book as perfect as Angry Arthur."

"Beautiful, important, profound – a perfect picture book... A must for every child’s bookshelf"

"Otam and Kitamura's depiction of Arthur remains a classic which continues to entertain and warn us all against unreasonable anger... Kitamura's stormy illustrations provide an additional cautionary narrative, as relevant to adults as children!"

"Kitamura is one of the world's most original and stylish children's illustrators."
