Author & Illustrator: Molly Bang

Awards: Caldecott Honor, Charlotte Zolotow Award, Jane Addams Peace Award
Summary: Sophie gets very angry when she gets in a fuss with her sister and she goes into a tantrum. It's shown by a red shadow behind her. She takes off to be alone and calm down and then returns home to her family.
Classroom Ideas: There is some great figurative language (onomatopiea- BABAM, tweet/ metaphor- she is a volcano, alliteration- red, red, roar). It's also a good example of problem and solution.
