Anger-books

Books for Anger from Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out

The Story of Tracy Beaker
Living in a ramshackle care home, it’s no wonder that Jacqueline Wilson’s Tracy Beaker is angry with the way her life has panned out. Luckily, she uses her vivid imagination to escape from her annoying surroundings and head off on some incredible adventures.

The Bad-Tempered Ladybird
You may think ladybirds are pretty little insects covered in spots, but in this book from the Very Hungry Caterpillar author Eric Carle shows an entirely different side to them. It’s one we think Anger would definitely appreciate… The star of this book is so angry he picks a fight with a whale, but it’s not long before he realises he’s bitten off more than he can chew and starts to learn about sharing.

Mr. Gum
Not only does Mr. Gum have a scabby arm but he also loves food fights… Is it any wonder he’s always getting angry in various crazy and madcap ways? Bizarre and demented in the best ways possible, we think Mr. Gum and Anger would become best pals as they put the world to rights!

The Twits
Extremely nasty to anyone they know – especially each other – Roald Dahl’s The Twits are a couple you wouldn’t want to meet, but their angry nature is sure to resonate with Anger! Full of anarchy and zaniness, the Muggle-Wump monkeys and the Roly-Poly bird plan to give the Twits a nasty, ghastly surprise…


Books for Sadness from Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out

With the release of Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out now upon us, children all around the world – and some adults too – are getting excited to meet the characters of the film: Disgust, Anger, Joy, Sadness and Fear. This made us think… which books would the characters from the Inside Out film love, being the personification of such raw emotions?

Sadness-books

Books for Sadness from Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out

Wonder
August is a 10-year-old boy with a severe facial disfigurement. Having been home-schooled his whole life, his life changes when he starts at middle school and has to deal with cruel bullies. Poignant, funny and never less than compelling, Wonder is an ultimately uplifting tale of hope and bravery but there are plenty of tears along the way.

Michael Rosen’s Sad Book
Based on the author’s own experiences after losing his son, this is a guide to bereavement that can strike a chord with anybody of any age. With sombre illustrations by Quentin Blake, the book takes a look at the feeling of sadness and other complex emotions and reassures readers that it is OK to cry.

Teardrop
Eureka can’t cry and has never been able to. Even when her mother unexpectedly died. Eureka was in the car when it all happened and wonders why and how she survived, but when she meets Anders and uncovers an ancient myth about a girl who cried an entire continent into the sea, she begins to piece together who she really is… A sad romantic novel.

The Fault in Our Stars
You know the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters by now but it’s no less heartbreaking the more you read it… We’re sure Sadness would put this book top of her list for when she wants to have a good cry. Hazel’s cynical nature makes way for optimism and enjoyment as she falls for Gus and they even enjoy a romantic trip to Amsterdam – but tragedy is never far away.


Books for Joy from Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out
