A picture book whodunit and a tongue-in-cheek story of a mom at the end of her rope, Who Broke the Teapot?! is a raucous and funny tale about anger management, broken china and the blame game. Mom is very angry. Her very favorite teapot is broken, and no one is ‘fessing up. Was it Dad, sitting in his underwear reading the paper? Was it Cat, who was all tangled up in a ball of yarn? Was it Baby perched in his highchair? Or is there a surprising twist to this mystery that teaches Mom a little lesson in anger management?
