The author, Dr Harmony is an Australian psychiatrist and mother who is dedicated to building a more resilient and confident young generation. The books are based on her clinical practice as a psychiatrist and her personal experience.

She has seen many adults in clinical practice, for over fourteen years, with issues related to low self-confidence and self-esteem and difficulties coping with uncomfortable feelings. Dr Harmony is passionate about addressing these issues in childhood, with the hope of preventing mental illness in later life.

Dr Harmony hopes to encourage children to identify their feelings, to express in constructive ways and to take positive action. By openly discussing the topics in a non-threatening and fun way, it helps children realise that other kids have similar experiences, that they are not alone and there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Great read! I sat down with my five year old boy and we read this book together. He immediately related to the angry behaviours in the book and connected to the more constructive ways to handle anger. It provided a great platform to start the conversation in a non-threatening way. Now each time he gets angry we talk about Kanga the dragon coming out of his pocket and before emotions run wild he is able to label it and re-direct his behaviour before having a melt down. I love how this book has given us a shared language which we can both relate to. Also, enjoyed the ease of the rhyme and the cute illustrations Thanks Dr Harmony!

Loved it! The message is obvious but not condescending. The build up to his anger will be exciting to the child as they love reading about naughty children/dragons, and will be happy to see AL find his way at the end. Drawings also are simple and not over the top. A very honest way to speak to a child and explain the impact of feelings on others. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Way too cheap!

This is a tremendous book for children. After reading it, I feel it deals with the problems of anger in children in a very easy to understand way. Having been a nanny for many years and found teaching children about feelings and anger can be difficult. This book explains these feelings very well. It will be loved as all children love rhymes. The illustrations are wonderful: childlike, colorful but informative.
One of the great things about the book is the section for children to complete. The parents page was helpful for adults to understand the child's feelings and problems. It gave useful tips for dealing with anger.
If this is the feeling I got from the first book of the series, I can't wait for the future books.
