Deep inside everyone, a red beast lies sleeping.

When it is asleep, the red beast is quite small, but when it wakes up, it begins to grow and grow.

This is the story of a red beast that was awakened.

Rufus is in the school playground when his friend John kicks a ball that hit him in the stomach, and wakes up the sleeping red beast: `I hate you - I'm gonna sort you out!'. The red beast doesn't hear the teacher asking if he's okay. It doesn't see that John is sorry - how can Rufus tame the red beast?

This vibrant fully illustrated children's storybook is written for children aged 5+, and is an accessible, fun way to talk about anger, with useful tips about how to 'tame the red beast' and guidance for parents on how anger affects children with Asperger's Syndrome.

Industry Reviews

A Startling original book about anger management. -- Healthybooks.org.uk
The illustrations are bold, vibrant in colour and child-friendly because they look like a very artistic child has drawn and then coloured them. There are 11 great strategies suggested at the back of the book, which are easy to implement and these alone make this terrific book work buying. -- Early Years Educator
The author offers strategies to tackle the uncontrollable outbursts of rage by children with special needs, which can be so difficult to contend with. "Inside every one of us lies a Red Beast sleeping. Asleep, the beast is small and harmless but when it wakes up, it grows into a destructive monster. This is a description that most parents of children with speical needs will recognise. -- BILD

I cannot recommend this wonderful book highly enough... The book helps children to understand what is happening to them when they get angry. The author cleverly describes anger as a red beast... The wonderful illustrations and simple story help children to talk about how their red beast makes them feel and how they can learn to tame it. The author also takes time to explain the strategies used to support children with ASD... I would definitely recommend this for any parent who is struggling with an angry child. -- Wellbeing Mentor blog

This is a great book for children or adults who struggle with anger. It is written in a fun and illustrative way, captivating the audience and helping the child understand the changes happening to their body . It is written for children with ASD which is why I got it for my son, his OT read him this book and it was amazing to see him identify and engage with the tools and steps to tame his red beast.
