What's No Fits, Nilson! About

Publisher Summary

Nilson and Amelia do everything together. But if one little thing goes wrong, Nilson throws the biggest, most house shaking-est fit ever! Amelia helps Nilson control his gorilla-sized temper by promising him banana ice cream and letting him play with her froggy coin purse. But, sometimes, Amelia needs to be calmed down, too.

Inspired by Ohora’s own “negotiations” with his two sons, No Fits, Nilson! is a hilarious preschool pick for kids and parents navigating the treacherous tantrum phase.

What Kind of Book is No Fits, Nilson!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

I love OHora’s signature illustration style! This is a great book for showing different coping mechanisms for fits (albeit a little more bribing than parents might hope for), but there’s a clever twist at the end that’s definitely heartwarming.
