Deep inside everyone, a red beast lies sleeping. When it is asleep, the red beast is quite small, but when it wakes up, it begins to grow and grow. This is the story of a red beast that was awakened. Danni is in the school playground when his friend, Charlie, kicks a ball that hits him in the stomach, and wakes up the sleeping red beast: `I hate you - I’m gonna get you!. The red beast doesn’t hear the teacher asking if he’s okay. It doesn’t see that Charlie is sorry - how can Danni tame the red beast?

This is an accessible, fun way to talk about anger, with useful tips about how to tame the red beast and guidance for parents on how anger affects children who struggle to regulate their emotions.
