Smiley Sidewalk Chalk

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the vivid scribbled fish on this black cover was, "Man, I want to lay on a warm sidewalk and doodle with some chalk!"
 Mies Van Hout's Happy is filled with bright fish sketched on a black page and a single word expressing an emotion.  The "jealous" fish is cutting his eyes at the reader and the "content" one looks down right blissful with its eyes closed and lips puckered up.

An excellent source of emotional vocabulary, this new non-fiction book might just inspire a therapeutic conversation over some sidewalk scribbling.
