We’ve all seen a bratty “Temper Tabitha” having a meltdown in public. But what happens when adults behave like children too?  This cleverly written story by rhyme & meter expert Jackie Hosking highlights one of the great misconceptions about adults: just because a person has grown up physically, doesn’t always guarantee that they’ve grown up emotionally and mentally too. Observation of adult behaviour often proves this to be true. Author Jackie Hosking is a rising star with seven picture books in production including titles with publishers like Walker Books & Scholastic.
