"Full of action and vibrancy. . . .A good way to soothe bad days away." -- School Library Journal

When Superheroes don't get their way,
when they're sad, when they're mad, when they've had a bad day . . .
. . . they COULD super-tantrum, they COULD but they DON'T ,
because REAL Superheroes just WOULDN'T --they WON'T !

All kids have trouble getting a grip on their emotions, sometimes--even young superheroes! But what do they do when they're having a bad day? Colorful action-packed illustrations and a dynamite rhyming text reveal the many ways superheroes (and ordinary children, too) can resist the super-temptation to cause a scene when they're sad, mad, frustrated, lonely, or afraid. From burning off steam on a bike or a hike, to helping others, this energetic picture book has plenty of fun ideas to help kids cope when they're feeling overwhelmed.

Even superheroes are not immune to bad days! This is a wonderfully illustrated book telling us in rhyme no less, that we can channel our negative energy and do something positive to tame our tempers when they flare. Fun to read aloud.

What a great book about handling emotions and how we respond. I thought that it would appeal to children of all ages, but particularly the preschool and younger primary. The book is an easy read, the rhymes make it ideal to read aloud. Illustrations are colourful with lots of detail and discussion points.

I liked that it acknowledges appropriate ways we can show we are upset.
"It's Ok if they frown. It's Ok if they sigh, It's even Ok if they slump down and cry"
The message is really not to overreact.
