Synopsis

Are you HAPPY AS A HIPPO? Or ANGRY AS A DUCK? Maybe SAD AS A CHICKEN? (Can you sadly say "CLUCK CLUCK"?) Bestselling author and illustrator Sandra Boynton is back with a brand new board book about moods and emotions. Boynton's clever animals exemplify a wide range of emotions in this hilarious story about different feelings. Little ones and adults alike are sure to smile and laugh as interactive text asks them if they are "grumpy as a moose or excited as a dog?", or maybe you might be "worried as a rabbit or contented as a frog?" With her charming quirky illustrations and trademark sense of humor, this new Boynton board book covers the first concept of moods and emotions.
