Crabs Are All Wet! You're a Crab! A Moody Day Book by Jenny Whitehead
SOME DAYS YOU CAN BE A SILLY JELLYFISH THAT DOES a WIGGLY-JIGGLY DANCE. AND SOME DAYS YOU CAN BE A CRAB!
Sometimes friends can get you out of a bad mood by trying to make you smile.
"I'M A PUFFER FISH THAT WILL HOLD ITS BREATH AND MAKE SILLY FACES AT YOU."
Other days you just remain a mopey manatee or a smelly anchovy, no matter what!
Moods are as changeable as the sea, in Jenny Whitehead's You're a Crab!: A Moody Day Book (Henry Holt and Company, 2015), and even a stormy day can turn sunny when your buddies stick with you.
YOU CAN TAKE AS LONG AS YOU NEED, BECAUSE I'LL BE THERE!
Author Jenny Whitehead stays on the sunny side of Moody Street in her jolly take on the blues "beneath the waves." Her hugging octopus, spouting whale, and "kissy-kissy frog" are funny enough to make a moping manatee laugh, with her sunny palette and silly illustrations of cranky crabs and long-faced squids that tease a grin out of the most determined little crabby crab. Pair this one with Theodore (Dr. Seuss) Geisel's insightful treatise on the moody blues, My Many Colored Days. After all, If Dr. Seuss can shake the blues and write stories that amuse, we can at least come up with a smile!
