Little Critter gets mad because everyone keeps telling him no!
Will Little Critter get so angry that he runs away, or will his bad day be salvaged
with a little help from a friend?
I was so mad by Mercer Mayer.
I wanted to keep some frogs in the bathtub but Mom wouldn't let me.
I was so mad. I wanted to play with my little sister's dollhouse but
Dad wouldn't let me. I was so mad. I wanted to play hide and seek in the clean
sheets but grandma said, "no, you can't." I was just so mad.
I wanted to water the garden but grandpa said, "no, you can't"
So I decided to decorate the house but grandpa said,
"no, you can't do that either." Was I ever mad. Dad said,
"why don't you play in the sandbox?" I didn't want to do that. Mom said,
"why don't you play on the slide?" I didn't want to do that either. Iwas too mad.
I wanted to practice my juggling show instead but mom said, "no, you can't."
I wanted to tickle the goldfish but mom said, "leave the goldfish alone."
"You won't let me do anything I want to do," I said. "I guess I'll run away.
" That's how mad I was. So I packed my wagon with my favorite toys.
And I packed a bag of cookies to eat on the way.
Then, I walked out the front door. But my friends were going to the park
to play ball. "Can you come too?" They asked and mom said I could.
I'll run away tomorrow if I'm still so mad.
