Product Details


Freeman makes moodiness awfully funny and does so economically in the ink-and-watercolor artwork — so many emotions are exhibited with so few lines. It’s rare that a picture book can make the audience identify with all the characters, but this one will have kids feeling bad, mad, and glad by turns.

The story conveys the hurtfulness of casual off-the-cuff comments and criticism, and … it is the act of sharing that cements the friendship. The characters’ expressive faces could enhance a classroom unit on emotions or kindness.
—School Library Journal

Comical, colorful… Small children will enjoy seeing the absurd side of their own emotions, not to mention those of their more volatile pals or siblings
—The Wall Street Journal
