Follow Your Feelings: Lucy and Sad

by Kitty Black and illustrated by Jess Rose

When Lucy has a hard time making friends, she’s joined by someone new: Sad.

But Sad isn’t the company Lucy had hoped for. It feels like Sad will never leave, even when Lucy tries hiding, distraction and running away!

But with the help of some flowers, cookies, a bedtime story and a big hug, Lucy can say goodbye for now to Sad and hello to someone new…

Follow Your Feelings is a touching, funny and charming new series about getting to know and love our emotions, from emotional acceptance champion Kitty Black and illustrator Jess Rose.
