is jealousy? And what are happiness, curiosity, shame, doubt,
and stubbornness? The Catalan illustrator Montse Gisbert has
created a kind of encyclopaedic picture book for small readers.
It describes basic human feelings and states of mind with
the help of examples based on a childs experience, such
as the fear of an injection at the doctors or the disappointment
of not being able to play outside in the sandbox with a friend
because it is raining. Each double-page spread of the small
square book offers a short text complemented by humorous and
poetic pictures in delicate pastel colours that aptly illustrate
the situations described. (6+)
