Angryman is unlike any picture book I've seen before...it is a story that also genuinely understands the troubled dynamics of a woman dependent on a man who abuses her and excuses him for it; a child who wears the guilt for it like a heavy blanket; and the necessity during healing and recovery for an examination of the abuser's own childhood.--Julie Danielson "Kirkus Reviews "
