What better feeling than opening a new book from Anthony Browne? A simple look at familiar emotions for the very young.

How do you feel? Sometimes you feel happy, sometimes sad. At times you feel curious, but that may be followed by feeling . . . surprised. And of course you feel bored or lonely once in a while as well. With spare words and simple, graphic illustrations, quintessential chimp renderer Anthony Browne draws on insight and humor to reassure children with an exploration of the varied emotions they experience.
