Lucy van Loon knows she’s a good girl.  So why is she always sitting in the Time Out chair?  After all, she had a very good reason for dumping Jacinta’s unicorn pencils all over the floor.  And she only threw a tantrum because her aunt from Holland called her a bad girl and a greedy liar, which was UTTERLY untrue.

In this gently humorous story, Marianne Musgrove takes a look at one child's temper and how she begins to get it under control.
