The Happiest Book Ever

About the Book
What could be happier than a book with a dancing cake, a candy parade, and a hug monster? A book with all those things (and more) plus YOU! Your happy, happy thoughts will make this book super happy happy! But something seems off. Could it be that frowny frog? Perhaps we could shake some sense into him, or slap a Post-it over his face. No? Well then, maybe its time for that frog to SCRAM! Hooray! He's gone! Time for a happy dance! Wait, what's wrong? Now NO ONE seems happy! Let's see if we can't do something to truly make this the happiest book ever.

In his most interactive book yet, Bob Shea proves that happiness is more than just a piece of chocolate cake. (Though that comes pretty close!)

My Take on the Book
Bob Shea's book was written for children between six and eight years old. Knowing this age level, he has written a funny book for them. He draws characters doing silly things. For example a cake dancing and gum drops playing double dutch. The focus seems to be a frog who does not smile.

The story highlights being happy or trying to make up funny things. However as the main character becomes angry at the frog who won't smile and banishes it from the story, you also see how anger and being mean is not acceptable. The author highlights the importance of apologizing at the end.
