Child – Everyday life – Feelings
What 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 child’s experience, such as the fear of an injection at the doctor’s 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+)
