A beautiful book about managing anger from the bestselling creators of While We Can't Hug.

There were so many things that Tortoise wanted to do.
So many games to play and rocks to climb.

Oops.

Tortoise was stuck.
Being stuck made Tortoise cross.

Tortoise is not having a good day and now he's stuck in a hole and and is far too cross for hugs. Hedgehog sits and waits and then makes Tortoise laugh - taking the time to let the moment pass, and acknowledge how Tortoise feels.
