The Bad Mood and The S...

The Bad Mood and The Stick by Lemony Snicket, illustrated by Matt Forsythe and published by Tundra Books is a story to explain how bad moods come and go. A little girl named Curly is the first owner of the bad mood. It had been with her since she was not allowed to have ice cream. Through a series of events throughout the day, the bad mood moves from person to person because "you never know what is going to happen." I loved this story from page one and chuckled my way through it. The Bee and The Bear were very excited to read the book and it is quite apropos in our house these days. The charming dreamy illustrations have a totally retro feel and it's so fun to try and find the bad mood on all of the pages. It's so clever how the stick fits into the whole story and a good reminder that a simple stick can bring joy to any in a bad mood.

For Early Reviewers. ...

For Early Reviewers. This is a book that can be read many times, and be rewarding each time. The bad mood of the title is a surprisingly bright little cloud that drifts from one character to another, and like a cloud it does not linger. It flits from character to character (and as the narrator points out, "You yourself had it several times"). The stick is just a stick, yet it too can have an effect on the course of events. The colourful illustrations capture the humour of the story perfectly. Readers can look for the bird and cat that appear on many spreads. The poor cat seems to have a bad mood more than most. Lots of scope for conversations about the story and pictures.

This is the kind of book I enjoyed reading to my children many years ago before they became the teenagers they are today. I really liked the illustrations and the story wasn't too bad either, although it was hard to see it through the eyes of those that it was written for. There were a couple of times I was left scratching my head, especially at the man in the dry-cleaners, but other than that it was a short enjoyable story about the effect of bad moods on us all and how we can deal with them. I'm sure it will become a favourite in some households anyway.

Great story that develops in a way that is not exactly how you expect. The illustrations definitely compliment the story, while adding a little bit more to each scene. There is a lot of opportunity for discussion regarding what other characters are up to through out the book as well. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute short tale about how our moods can affect others. Predictable but a good read-aloud for young children. Recommended.
