Angry Cookie has been my kids’ #1 storytime pick every night for a week now. Needless to say, Angry Cookie’s wit, frustration, and fuming humor has been a hit in our home.
We meet Angry Cookie mid-rant, which initially began due to a certain roommate’s terrible musical skills. He speaks directly to the reader, voicing frustrations and minor irritants with quirky, unintentional humor. We rarely get to see characters lean into their anger - which after all, is a very common human emotion. The moral of the story is, that sometimes the best way to cheer up a grumpy lump like an Angry Cookie is to simply stick around, and listen.
