School Library Journal - 06/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—Sometimes you just have a day where you're in a mood. A good one or a bad one, a silly one, or a sad one. But it's important to know that everyone has days like this and that even if you're mad today, it doesn't mean you are going to be mad tomorrow. Using pictures done with a colorful and whimiscal mixture of paint, tissue paper, and Photoshop, this work takes a look at the entire rainbow of emotions. Sea creatures including dolphins, jellyfish, whales, sharks, and the titular crab take readers on a fun journey through a variety of feelings. The narrator helpfully offers a sympathetic lense by reminding readers and listeners, "Don't worry. Sometimes I can be crabby, too." This simple picture book will reassure young children that even if they feel crabby one day, the very next day they can be happy and silly again. VERDICT A fun addition for collections seeking more whimsical, and less academic, picture books about emotions.—Paige Garrison, Aurora Central Public Library, CO - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
