From the world of The Day No One Was Angry comes this illustrated collection of interconnected stories following a familiar cast of creatures. The stories are most appropriate for older readers because of their complex themes, which could elude younger children. Powerful messages arise, as when, while considering what a firebelly toad’s anger might feel like, a tortoise offers: “Or it might be something heavy…. so heavy nobody can lift it.” The illustrations play with contrasts and shadows, complementing the moody atmosphere.
