Arthur's mother asked him to go to bed and prevented him from watching TV, so Arthur became angry. He was very, very angry, angry enough to shatter the entire universe... but suddenly, Arthur forgot what made him so angry...
"Angry Arthur" uses a breathtakingly rare technique to depict children with elusive and utterable emotions-"angry", which also profoundly illustrates the impact of this universal emotional experience on children. Although there are many children's books on emotional themes, rarely, children can fully express their temper throughout the book, as if the focus of the whole world is on the child and his anger. This cut-in angle highlights the importance of this matter, and also shows that the creator understands and sympathizes with children's views and feelings when they are angry.
Therefore, "Angry Arthur" does not take adult-style reactions as the main axis to show how to restrain and change children's angry behavior: "How can children be so angry?" "What kind of anger do children have? "You are a good kid if you don't get angry!" Instead, take a "microscope" with readers to take a closer look at "angry" to figure out what's going on. This attitude of being honest and exploring emotions is also a healthy way of presentation.
