Picture Book of the Month - Angry Cookie by Laura Dockrill

What happens when a little cookie gets up on the wrong side of bed?
Prepare to fall absolutely in love with this irresistible cookie, crumbly chocolate chips and all. 

OH NO! Barbra the cactus won’t stop playing her recorder, the yummy strawberry toothpaste has run out, and now – to top it all off – Cookie has to have his hair cut! Which all makes for one VERY ANGRY little cookie... But perhaps you, the reader, can find a way to turn his grumpy frown upside down? This wildly inventive, interactive, laugh-out-loud tale brings together Laura Dockrill's one-of-a-kind voice and Maria Karipidou's hilarious illustrations.

Watch the Angry Cookie trailer below! Plus you can see Laura read part of the book.
