A lovely book of prose. Each page describes an emotion as though it was a person and there are many pen and ink drawings to illustrate each. (ex.: Pleasure loves the sun, the wind and the night sky, but many people mistrust her. Worry makes lists of everything that can go wrong while she is waiting on the train.)
The descriptions are lyrical and feel right and true. This is a book for quiet moments of reflection to help you understand your feelings and put them in perspective. Would be good for someone who is having a hard time emotionally.

I would give the book 5 stars.
I enjoyed it so much, but could only read it half at a time.
the author uses example of current everyday things to draw
a parallel to each quality.
I also recommend sharing the book with many friends and family.
So thought provoking!
