Lela Lee created the short video "angry little asian girl, the first day of school" her sophomore year (1994) while studying rhetoric at UC Berkeley.
After several years, she revisited the project with additional episodes, and it was shown at animation festivals.
Inspired, Lela Lee decided to transform her character into a comic and years later, Deborah, Wanda, Maria, Xyla, Pat, Patsy Pup, Percy Cat, and Chuy the Travelin' Chicken grace her weekly online comic for a dedicated following.
This book introduces the various characters featured in the comic, and asks readers, "What kind of angry are you?" Though unmistakably - and hilariously - angry throughout, this book has also has a lot of heart, which has been the true key to Lela's success. *Angry Little Girls is much cuter and sweeter than Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks at Them.
The girls get angry, but they're never as mean-spirited.
