A book of moods

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Happy Hippo, Angry Duck 
A book of moods
Sandra Boynton’s newest board book is a celebration of moods and moodiness—from happy to angry, and everything in between. In classic Boynton rhyme, and with those captivating characters, the varieties of moods are carefully considered. New York City-based actor Keith Boynton provides the energetic and wry narration for his mother’s insightful and funny new book.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2011 – With her familiar brand of gentle absurdity, Boynton creates similes that ascribe moods to various animals. "Hello, Little Person!/ How are you today?" greets a concerned-looking bear. Part of the book's pleasure is that Boynton doesn't rely on clich d animal personifications: "Are you happy as a hippo?/ Or angry as a duck?/ Maybe sad as a chicken?/ ( Can you sadly say, "Cluck Cluck?" ')"After the characters tell readers, "Well, I hope you are happy./ But if you are not,/ you have friends who will help you./ We like you a lot," even kids in the stoniest of moods will feel the effect of this pick-me-up. All ages.

Not as good as the stand alone apps

These are disappointing after the amazing interactivity of the stand alone books available through the app store. Get those instead; hopefully more titles in that line will be added.


Cute book for little ones.
