The Bad Mood and the Stick Press Reviews

Skilfully immersive... here a seemingly traditional picture book is full of mischievous values. Children will love the engaging illustrations by Matt Forsythe, and will enjoy Snicket's teasing moral: that even bad moods have a silver lining -- Emily Bearn * Daily Telegraph * Snicket's story takes unexpected turns and reveals delightful surprises, told with smart, silly language and cheeky asides; every page blooms with beautiful artwork done in bright, colorful gouache washes and featuring charming, 1960s-style animal and human characters. * Kirkus, starred review * Lemony Snicket's simply told story offers a refreshing, thoughtful, and hilarious look at the ways in which a bad mood wreaks havoc * Lovereading4Kids * A refreshingly hilarious look at the ways in which a bad mood wreaks havoc... Will strike a chord with everyone * Angels and Urchins * A thoughtful look at the mysterious and unexpected ways in which bad moods move from person to person, with lashings of Snicket's droll humour. A great starting point from which to discuss emotions with children. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
