Wrinkles is an adorable and well balanced elephant. Flappy is a cute and energetic dragon. They live in a wondrous world together, filled with mysteries. They are each special in their own way and they have super-powers that they can use whenever an emotional 'alarm' is triggered. Wrinkles and Flappy become separated, putting their mission in jeopardy. In this book, you will learn about the two secrets that bring them back together and help them to get back on track and accomplish their mission.
• The story, through the characters in this book, represent the process we all go through when controlling our emotions and allows children to visualize this process.
• It offers parents simple, helpful prompts in teaching children emotional and impulse control.
• It illustrates and describes, through rhyme and funny and accessible characters, the benefits of emotional control of all parts of the brain.
• Rhyming lyrics help children to remember to tell the story, enabling them to remember how to access their internal resources in order to process events and emotions.

Main Characters

  • Wrinkles is the 'younger' more evolved part of the brain, dealing with complex processes like: planning, problem solving, impulse and emotional control. Explain to your child, that he also has such a part in his brain, and 'his' Wrinkles part of the brain is also growing, just like him, and that it gets stronger with practice.
  • Flappy represents the more primitive part of our brain that primarily deals with survival. You might find it useful, to explain to your child that given his crucial role in ensuring survival, sometimes 'our own' Flappy, does not make a difference between an actual life threatening situation and a situation they perceive as a threat because one of their needs is not fulfilled, and they don't yet have the resources and practice to request the fulfillment of those needs in an appropriate way.
