This original jacketed hardcover picture book in the New York Times-bestselling Pout-Pout Fish series shows little guppies how to deal with anger through self-compassion.

When one thing goes wrong, and then another, then another stacked on top, a feeling fills Mr. Fish’s gills, much bigger than a blub—a mad, mad “GRRRRRRR!” Mr. Fish tells his worried friends,“I am mad and getting madder, and I don’t know how to stop!” Swim along with the pout-pout fish as he figures out how to take control of his anger through deep breathing, identifying and naming his emotions, and practicing self-compassion. Bright ocean colors and playful rhyme come together in a story that will help kids learn to manage their emotions in a mindful and healthy way, alongside their favorite cast of undersea critters.
