ACHUKA Book of the Day 14 Apr 2021
Oh, yes! A new book from the illustrator of I Am A Bird, a previous ACHUKA Book of the Day.
Starting from the happiness of waking up into a brand-new day, the book goes on to explore the kinds of relationships and contrasts that play out between our feelings and experiences. Whether it’s the nervousness of a beginning paired with the happiness of a middle; the indignity of a cut against the happiness of a scab; the boredom of nothing to do contrasted with the happiness of nothing to do; or the divide of mine against the happiness of our, these pages challenge the reader to think about daily activities and experiences and the feelings they conjure. They also lead us to think about the substance of our happiness, and what the ingredients of it might be. Written with subtlety and nuance and illustrated in pencil, pen and watercolour with great tenderness, The Happiness of a Dog with a Ball in its Mouth is a gentle and philosophical read.
