Henry has a problem with anger, and when he is angry, he tends to lash out physically. In the five vignettes in this book, we see Henry getting angry about something and being given three choices as to what he should do about it. The situations are everyday ones such as: his brother cheating in a game, his friends leaving him out of a game in the playground, a friend snatching a toy that Henry has been playing with, being bored when going shopping with his dad, and a classmate pushing in front of him in the lunch queue. In choosing the right thing to do, Henry (and we) are learning how to cope with feelings of anger in the right way, and we also learn that we are happier when we do so. An index, a glossary and two pages of advice for adults when using the book with a child add to the production - as do the bright and clever illustrations.
