Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Now a Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of 2013, a New York Public Library Book for Reading and Sharing, and The Huffington Post's Best Overall Picture Book of 2013!

"Foot-stomping fit pitchers will take multiple timeouts for this amusing modern fable." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A visual feast as well as a treat to the ear, this is a book that’s going to find an audience no matter where it goes." - Betsy Bird, School Library Journal Review of the Day

"OHora’s rough, woodcutlike acrylic paintings are a delight, and there are quirky details to be savored everywhere...Nilson’s (and Amelia’s) struggle to behave will leave a lasting impression." - Publishers Weekly

"OHora’s acrylic illustrations evince a crispness of finish, smoothness of color, and strength of black line that suggests particularly lively woodcuts, and a streamlined retro palette...enhances the graphic strength." - Bulletin of Center for Children's Books

Stop Snoring, Bernard! won the 2011 Society of Illustrator's Founder's Award and is the Pennsylvania One Book Selection for 2012.
