About the Author

Joanna Cotler is a writer, an artist and a children's book editor. Although she lives in New York City with her husband, sometimes she wishes she lived on a farm where she could commune with a pig or a duck or a cow.

Harry Bliss is an internationally syndicated cartoonist and cover artist for the New Yorker magazine. His syndicated comic 'Bliss' appears in newspapers internationally. He has written and illustrated over 20 books for children and is the founder of the Cornish Fellowship for Graphic Novelists in Cornish, New Hampshire. He is currently working with comedian/musician Steve Martin on a book of cartoons.


*"An exploration of the repercussions of a bad mood could have turned into a pedantic moral tale, but Cotler and Bliss' light touch and humorous approach offer insight without judgment. Clever, funny, and true--really." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

*"At the farm where author and children's book editor Cotler and artist Bliss's emotionally honest story is set, bad moods aren't just contagious--they're epidemic . . . .The animals, rendered expressively by Bliss, learn what kids already know and adults too easily forget: the capacity to say "I'm sorry"--and mean it--is no small thing."--PW (starred review)

"Cotler's story is a simple yet valuable one, an excellent example for young readers, and a nice reminder for older readers that kindness goes a long way....a smart choice for any collection."--SLJ
