‘Starving the Anger Gremlin does an excellent job of examining the harmful effects of anger. Kate Collins-Donnelly clearly explains how irrational thoughts influence negative emotions such as anger. She also helps readers understand how they can change their reactions to events by changing their thinking. Starving the Anger Gremlin is a well-constructed manual on anger management that will undoubtedly help children and adolescents. Read it and enjoy!’
- Jerry Wilde, Ph.D., author of Hot Stuff to Help Kids Chill Out: The Anger Management Book
'Starving the Anger Gremlin is an absolute necessity for anyone working with children and young people who may need help with their anger. This workbook was recommended to me by a colleague and, as a Headteacher, I have found it to be a fantastic resource for use in the school with Key Stage 2 pupils. Pupils respond extremely well to its easy to read style, relevant examples and empowering approach. Support staff feel their knowledge in the area of anger management has improved immensely and that the book provides invaluable activities that they can work through with pupils in an educational and supportive way. A superb and effective resource!'

'I used Starving the Anger Gremlin with a 14 year old client who up until that point had been extremely difficult to engage. He loved the book and engaged with it immediately. I couldn't believe it! He liked the fact that it was written in a non-judgemental way, that it gave you constructive tools to use and discussed examples that were relative to his world. He also found the quotes from other young people reassuring as he realised that he wasn't on his own in feeling and behaving the way he did. He is making great changes thanks to the skills learnt. I would highly recommend this book to practitioners and young people alike.'
- Youth Worker, Derbyshire, UK.
'The clarity of the text and simplicity of the layout mean that young readers could use the book independently or with the supervision of a parent or carer, or as homework in between sessions with a mental health worker.'
- Young Minds
'The first thing I liked about this book was the fact that the author addresses the intended reader first – the young person who may seek self-help support and who may then wish to share with the adults... The book is thin but packed with enough challenges and tasks to be a useful addition to the shelves of every school counsellor and youth worker... The book is mainly geared towards the adolescent market, but I can see a use for this in primary school as well as with some adults.'
