Fun and clever rhymes introduce us to moods - silly ones, bad ones, happy ones, sad ones - and everything in between . The colours in the madcap zany illustrations often reflect the moods - red for anger, multi-colours for joy and excitement, and sombre, quieter colours for lonely, sad days. A 'mood wheel' on the final page turns to make the face change emotions: 'I'd rather feel silly, excited or glad, Than cranky or grumpy, discouraged or sad. But moods are just something that happen each day Whatever I'm feeling inside is okay.' Well, yes, but sometimes emotions need to be restrained too, so as not to hurt others.
