An energetic adventure, with two-colour illustrations throughout and relatively short, manageable chapters for younger readers. Whilst the story is set in a fun alternative world, Percival manages to cleverly weave in themes of emotional care, as Erika’s bad mood also attracts a dangerous Angermare and she has to learn to manage her own anger in order to defeat it.
