Happy Book cover Twenty-one emotions that a child encounters are portrayed by fish in this splashy, simple concept book.  Each double page spread presents one dazzling fish against a dark, deep sea background, expressing a particular emotion and its name in a font style and color that also conveys the emotion. Fish are curious, proud, loving, confused, shocked, and much more until finally delighted.  The red, turquoise, chartreuse, magenta, and other neon-like oil pastel scribbly drawings are radiant. mjw
