And when Emily gets angry, she turns into a real tiger. Roar, teeth and all. It takes her wise grandmother who also has a temper of her own to teach Emily how to tame her inner tiger.

When Emily gets, mad, upset, or angry, she turns into a tiger! Her parents don't know what to do with her - until her grandma shows up. Grandma can also change into a tiger, but she is a happy tiger. She shows Emily how to tame her inner tiger as well.

Lovely illustrations, very fun and playful.
if you have a child that has a bit of a defiant streak laced with some attitude, then this is the book for you. a very cute way of expressing the ability to choose your reactions as a child. my daughter now tells me that she doesn't want to be an "angry tiger". too cute.

Recommends it for: preschool tantrums behavior
Emily has a bad temper-- her inner tiger is released any time something doesn't go her way. Would be good to read with children who are having trouble with tantrums. I'm hoping my son will like it.

Emily always lets her inner tiger roar when things do not go her way until her grandmother shows her how to turn her angry tiger into a happy one.

As someone born in the year of the Tiger, under the sign of Leo, and with a heck of a temper, I love this book!

It's better to be a tiger when you're happy. ^_^
What a delightfully fun and effective way to help children learn to identify and control their emotions! The illustrations are deliciously lush and whimsical.
