Christopher is a young boy who lives in the small town of Paris, Ontario. Christopher has a big problem—his temper. Ever since Christopher was little, all anybody who knew him could remember was a kid with a short fuse. He could throw a tantrum over everything—and nothing.
Christopher’s temper made life tough for him when he started kindergarten. The other children, once they saw Christopher display these impressive temper tantrums, began teasing him unmercifully. It was fun watching Christopher throw a tantrum.
Christopher’s school days were very lonely. He didn’t have any friends, and he always had an angry look in his eyes. School was one of the most horrible places he had to endure.
