A cookie announces that it doesn't want to face the new day after suffering through the previous one (bad haircut, bad toothpaste, etc.). Upon concluding a recap, the cookie realizes that it doesn't have it so bad: "I guess you are still here, aren't you?" This funny-as-heck anger-management primer features a goofy-looking edible cast.
Kirkus Reviews
A baked good goes through a whole emotional experience in this fourth wall-busting picture book."Oooohhh, not you again!" gripes a redheaded, buck-toothed chocolate-chip cookie. "Close this book this very second, you nosy noodle!" And so it goes, as the cookie does its best to keep you, the reader, from proceeding. After a premature "The end," the cookie tries to get you to close the book, but of course persistent readers keep going. The cookie vents about its day, with trials and tribulations familiar to a young audience: no more strawberry toothpaste, an annoying friend, a bad haircut, and an ice cream shop that's run out of its favorite sundae. But toward the end the cookie realizes "why I'm so angry at the whole world. Because nobody listens to me. Nobody sticks around." But in fact the reader is still there, turning the cookie's mood around, showing that listening is an important way to support a friend having a bad day. Energetic, expressive, childlike art (with one shot of a gratuitous, giggle-inducing cookie butt) pairs well with the goofy-but-sincere plot, and it's sure to keep young audiences engaged. A host of other anthropomorphized foods and plants, including Barbra the recorder-playing cactus and a carrot that yells "Look at that cookie wearing the too-small hat," helps fill out the scenes. An entertaining approach to helping children work through their emotions. (Picture book. 4-7)
Publishers Weekly
An expressive cookie with arms, legs, and red scribbly hair (perhaps resembling a round potato) wakes up mad. He accusatorily addresses the reader: -Close this book this very second, you nosy noodle!- In the manner of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, the cookie describes all that went wrong the day before. His roommate, a cactus, played an irritating song on her recorder; he got a bad haircut (and a hat too small to cover it); and the ice cream parlor ran out of his favorite flavor. Lamenting that -nobody listens to me. Nobody sticks around,- the cookie perks up when he realizes the reader is still there. The character-s direct engagement with its audience is good fun. Ages 3-7. (Mar.)

Famed spoken-word poet Laura Dockrill's hilarious read-aloud about an outraged baked good!

Oooohhh . . . not you again!
AGGGHH It’s so bright! . . . Close this book this very second, you nosy noodle!

Cookie has woken up on the wrong side of the bed and is very angry. You want to know why? Well, you’d have to keep reading to find out, but now Cookie’s calling you annoying and telling you to mind your own business. If by chance you do stick around, you might hear about a certain roommate’s terrible musical skills, why you should never let your barber try out a “new look,” how it’s impossible to find a hat that fits a cookie, and why an ice-cream parlor that’s out of your favorite treat can be a source of desolation. Then there’s the matter of a hungry bird who tries to snack on you. . . . Propelled by quirky humor and woes that every young child can relate to, Angry Cookie suggests that sometimes the best way to cheer up a grumpy lump is simply by being there — and lending your ears.
