The main idea of this hilarious tale is to describe what it is like when a young child has a tantrum. I really enjoyed reading this book! First, I loved the illustrations. Finn has a mini storm cloud over his head, and each page shows some sort of natural disaster occurring because of the fit he is throwing. Obviously this does not really happen when a child throws a tantrum, but the author does a great job relating the outburst to multiple kinds of loud and disruptive natural disasters. I also liked that each page wasn't filled with text, instead the illustrations were the main focus. ( )

This is a pic book, the pictures are like water color. Typically one sentence per page. Good to read when learning about weather. Ex: winds blow, snow melts, hurricanes shake. Ages: 6-8

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763623563, Hardcover)

Who among us hasn't encountered that force of nature called "a fit"? A best-selling author and illustrator depict a toddler’s tantrum in all its horror and hilarity.

Finn likes peaches. Usually. But not today. Today Finn doesn’t like
anything. Uh-oh. Is Finn going to throw a fit? Author David Elliott
directs the event with wit, warmth, and appropriate wariness, while
illustrator Timothy Basil Ering’s energy and whimsy match this tantrum
turn for turn. At once empathetic and uproariously funny, this picture
book speaks directly to anyone (young or old) who has ever had — or
tried to contain — a real earth-quaking, ground-shaking, full-on fit.
