You Get What You Get

Written by Julie Gassman and Illustrated by Sarah Horne

It tackles the problem of handling disappointment in a clever and straightforward way. Melvin throws a fit whenever he doesn't get what he wants. Apparently this is tolerated at home and he always gets his way, but at school the rule is "You get what you get if you don't throw a fit." Melvin learns to control his behavior at school pretty quickly and when he spills the beans at home, his parents take on a new philosophy as well.
