An important new story about ill-temper from the creator of Not Now Bernard, and Elmer the patchwork elephant.

Mum's cross with me,' said Jennifer.'It's Mrs Green's fault,' said Henry. But just who is Mrs Green? Henry knows that Mum is cross because Mr Moon has hooted at her; he had been so impatient because he was fuming at being called 'stupid' by his wife; and his wife had been so irritable because she had been hurried in the supermarket - Like a line of cascading dominoes, there is a whole string of very recognizable, silly scenarios to absorb before the identity of Mrs Green can be revealed. Her high heels tapping about in the flat above had started the whole chain of bad temper! Internationally acclaimed for his books about Elmer the patchwork elephant, this new picture book will earn McKee further popularity through its ebullient colour and wit.
