Description of this Book

Lemony Snicket's simply told story offers a refreshing, thoughtful, and hilarious look at the ways in which a bad mood wreaks havoc as it moves from person to person, leaving an unexpected trail of surprise in its wake: opportunities for laughter, forgiveness and even love. Meet the most endearing and unpredictable bad mood yet - an emoji-like cloud character - who allows young readers to look their bad mood in the eye. From the author of the acclaimed, bestselling picture book The Dark comes another wise observation about the emotional forces that impact our lives.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A thoughtful look at the mysterious and unexpected ways in which bad moods move from person to person, with lashings of Snicket's droll humour. A great starting point from which to discuss emotions with children. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * Snicket's fans will love this book, but readers need never have read a single word by the author to appreciate the wonderfully presented universality of the bad mood and how quickly a little thing can chase it away - or beckon it upon us. * Kirkus, starred review *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
