August 2021 Book of the Month

Perfectly pitched, gorgeously illustrated and told simply but with sophistication, this is a must-have picture book. Ravi is cross with his little sister Ruby and breaks her toy car, ‘So no-one went to bed feeling happy.’ He wakes up in the morning to find he’s wearing a Grumpy Hat. Red and uncomfortable looking, it is ‘as itchy as a spider’s dance class’. Dad is wonderfully patient and has lots of practical suggestions, but nothing works and soon the Grumpy Hat is turning into a Sad Hat. When hope seems to be vanishing altogether and Ravi is completely buried by the hat, just his little feet visible at the brim, he has an idea. He says sorry to Ruby and they start to play together again. The Red Hat disappears and suddenly Ravi is wearing a ‘very fine pair of Happy Socks’. It’s a superb exploration of feelings, articulated in a way that even the very young will understand; a book to evoke the strongest feelings of recognition in child and adult reader, and full of humour too. 

 

Eva Eland’s Klaus Flugge Prize winner When Sadness Comes to Call and the follow up Where Happiness Begins also examine feelings little children will recognise but struggle to put into words, and Tom Percival’s Big Bright Feelings series of picture books will similarly prompt lots of conversations and understanding.
