Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Snicket's story takes unexpected turns and reveals delightful surprises, told with smart, silly language and cheeky asides; every page blooms with beautiful artwork done in bright, colorful gouache washes and featuring charming, 1960s-style animal and human characters. * Kirkus, starred 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 *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
