Sarah Maycock- Sometimes I Feel…: A Menagerie of Feelings Big and Small


"Sometimes I feel as big as a bear . . . But there will always be someone bigger than me. There are lots of ways that we can feel, so many emotions big and small. Sarah Maycock explores our feelings through a collection of animal similes and poetic prose, imagined with sublime illustrations that perfectly embody each emotion. Even a big bear can feel small sometimes. A thought-provoking one-off picture book from an illustrator skyrocketing in popularity."
