Ellie Jelly wakes up hungry and ready for breakfast, but Mum is busy with her little sister Grace. Ellie tries to get Mum's attention: she bangs the table, she makes loud singing noises, but it's no good. Finally she decides to make her own breakfast, picking up the heavy milk carton and - OH NO - spilling the milk all over the table and the floor!
Mum gets really angry and shouts at Ellie - Ellie feels all wobbly and her chest is banging - will Ellie Jelly and Mum ever be friends again?
This book will helps children aged 3-7 to understand why parents sometimes get angry, and that they don't always mean what they mean when they are cross. Ellie's mum loves her more than the whole wide world.

This is a lovely book which tells the story of how one mum loses her temper, then attempts to put it right, by admitting she got it wrong and saying sorry. This book can help young children realise that adults may shout, but they can also apologise, and help children understand how much they're loved. -- Elizabeth O'Shea, Parenting specialist, and founder of Parent 4 Success.
