              Age range 3 to 9 Tabitha is naughty. Tabitha is rude. When a brand new hat catches Tabitha's eye (and the eye of a rival boy), it's not long before Tabitha throws a temper tantrum and gets all the customers in the store involved. Chaos and madness ensues and Tabitha soon learns t...hat kindness and manners are a much better way to behave. We've all seen a bratty little Temper Tabitha having a tantrum in the shops before... and rolled our eyes. 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, it's presumed they've grown up emotionally and mentally too. Observation of adult behaviour often proves this is not the case.
