"A remarkable book ... simple but never over-simplified." Observer

"An invaluable tool for parents struggling to cope with children's changing moods. No home - or school - should be without this book." Lancashire Evening Post

A warm, gentle book for young children who sometimes struggle to express what they're feeling. Amanda McCardie's supremely sensitive text explores different emotions through the eyes of two young children. Over the course of the narrative, Sam and Kate experience feeling happy, grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad, angry and jealous - Salvatore Rubbino's beautiful pictures show the children in many different situations at home and at school, while the text explores how emotions can change over time, escalating or fading away. A book full of warmth and reassurance, and a brilliant tool for parents and carers.
