A meaningful gift for grads, new parents, newlyweds, or anyone starting down a new road in life, this inspirational book of charming cartoons is full of reminders to "be happy!"

Illustrator Monica Sheehan has collected some of her most beloved cartoons from Real Simple magazine in a truly inspirational book that will remind you of the small things that really do matter for a happier life: show up, do things you're good at, dance...and get a good night's sleep. Be Happy takes up where Life's Little Instruction Book leaves off, pairing simple truths with charming, New Yorker-esque illustrations in an irresistible, pocket-sized package that's all wrapped up with a red elastic ribbon.
