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.
David Elliott is the author of the New York Times best-selling picture book And Here’s to You!, illustrated by Randy Cecil, and On the Farm, illustrated by Holly Meade. He lives in Warner, New Hampshire.
