Finn Throws a Fit!

author: David Elliott
illustrator: Timothy Basil Ering

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.

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.
