Do you ever feel as stubborn as a mule? Or as chicken as a chicken? Of course you do. Everyone does.
In this lighthearted look at feelings, David Milgrim tenderly and humorously sketches the emotional range—from awkward to unnoticed, to really, rrrreally mad. Ultimately reassuring, this is a loving look at the normal, natural feelings we all have.
About the Author
Praise For Wild Feelings…
“Milgrim's lighthearted illustrations and empathetic understanding of child behavior make this a first purchase and a good choice both for one-on-one discussions and for storytime.” —School Library Journal
“This title is a fresh take on the theme of accepting differences in others. Milgrim's digital drawings feature silly monsters and contrast different likes and dislikes, different personalities.” —School Library Journal on Some Monsters Are Different
“Interesting how being yourself is championed, yet at the same time, most kids are keenly aware of the pressure to fit in and not be too different. In this slim title, Milgrim pairs his brief text with hilarious illustrations to celebrate a charmingly diverse group of monsters.” —Kirkus Review on Some Monsters Are Different
“An energetic romp with high appeal.” —School Library Journal on Eddie Gets Ready for School
“That age-old struggle of getting kids off to school in the morning goes to new extremes in this howler from Milgrim. . . . Parents who have been there and kids who are still struggling with independence will find it hard not to root for Eddie.” —Kirkus Reviews on Eddie Gets Ready for School
