This hardback picture book is longer than usual but is worth every page. In a highly imaginative and remarkable way, we see feelings portrayed as they have never been before. Twenty-nine different small furry creatures show us what they do when no one else is around, and the artistic work, in different greys and blacks on white backgrounds with the odd spot of occasional soft colour, is outstanding in every way. For instance, Contentment ‘rests in an armchair with a cup of tea in its paws’, Trust ‘builds bridges’, Compassion ‘helps snails across the pavement’, and Patience has ‘a beautiful garden’. More negative feelings are handled too: Anger ‘explodes’; Hatred ‘chews through wires’; Sadness ‘wraps itself in a blanket’. Translated from Polish into twenty-five different languages, this poignant and heart-warming information book will teach children about feelings as nothing else quite can and deserves to be in every primary classroom.
