Editorial Reviews

Review

"Max Lang’s bright watercolors of animals doing their thing are winning accompaniments to the narrative’s welcome message that it’s OK to be down sometimes." —School Library Journal

"Suzanne Lang's encouragement to sit with your emotions (thus allowing them to pass) is nearly Buddhist in its take, and it will be great bibliotherapy for the crabby, cranky, and cross. Oscar-nominated animator Max Lang's cartoony illustrations lighten the mood without making light of Jim's mood; Jim has comically long arms, and his facial expressions are quite funny." —Kirkus Reviews

"Crisp illustrations featuring a broad cast of animated, boldly colored animals against white backgrounds (except a bright red page when Jim really loses it) will draw readers into Jim’s situation until the reassuring outcome. Although their helpfulness is part of the problem, the animals are enthusiastic, kind-hearted souls trying to be good friends." —Booklist

"A monkey learns to ride out a wave of emotion in this reassuring picture book about feelings." —Publishers Weekly
