    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Camper is happy as a clam and Clam is a happy camper. When you live in The Happy Book, the world is full of daisies and sunshine and friendship cakes . . . until your best friend eats the whole cake and doesn't save you one bite. Moving from happiness to sadness and everything in between, Camper and Clam have a hard time finding their way back to happy. But maybe happy isn't the goal--being a good friend is about supporting each other and feeling all the feels together. At once funny and thoughtful, The Happy Book supports social-emotional learning. It's a book to keep young readers company no matter how they're feeling!"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 February #2

*Starred Review* Fans of Pixar's Inside Out should love this zany yet wise exploration of feelings. The title and cover seem to indicate that happiness is the main focus, but the hero (happy) Camper and his sidekick, (happy as a) Clam, traverse some very dark, uncomfortable terrain here. Rash's comic-book art is saturated with intense color (each emotion gets its own color: red for anger, green for fear, etc.) and witty details (like the bwah-bwah sound of a sad trombone) that make this trip through a range of feelings a hoot. Camper, in his Boy Scout uniform, and Clam, a semicircle with two eyes and a big, expressive mouth, move through a series of books, from The Happy Book to The Sad Book to The Scared Book to The Angry Book and, finally, to The Feelings Book. Something in each book triggers the next emotion, and Camper and Clam become immersed in the feeling, while also meeting a new friend, like the wet hen in The Angry Book. Camper and Clam talk about why their feelings have been changing and realize their friendship can overcome any problematic emotions. This comforting conclusion leads them to the final Feelings Book, where they throw a rainbow-themed party for all the book's feelings. Adults should have as much fun reading this as children. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 December #4

Rash presents a story about the interconnectivity of emotions, presenting each as a distinct realm dominated by a moody primary color. When a yellow-haired "happy Camper," dressed in a scout uniform, eats the entire friendship cake made by best friend Clam, the mollusk woefully rushes through a panel in the bright and sunny "Happy Book" to the inky blue "Sad Book." There, Clam meets bulgy-eyed sad Trombone ("Bwah-bwah"), picked last for a jazz band. When Camper arrives, misunderstandings and bad feelings lead the characters to the "Angry Book," where a pugnacious red bird resides, and then to the "Scared Book." Finally, Camper and Clam arrive in the "Feelings Book," where all of the emotions coexist. Rash's bright, kinetic art captures the intensity of feelings, while the mood-fluctuating characters demonstrate emotions' ephemerality. Ages 3–7. (Feb.)
