“I haven’t laughed this hard for a long time. Reading the activities, one easily realizes the scale and pointlessness of one’s bad mood. These feelings will quickly pass. Especially quickly when one starts listing the dark corners of one’s mind. This book is the funniest way to spend time this summer!”

LITTLE BOOK OF BAD MOODS
by Lotta Sonninen and Piia Aho

 

Fed up with being positive? Try the opposite – an activity book in style of Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal. Rights sold to 32 territories!

Are you done and over with positivity and wellbeing? Here’s an adults’ activity book of negativity and ill-being! List your enemies, vent the rage and hide the book from your spouse, children and colleagues.

The Little Book of Bad Moods parodies the positivity trend and adults’ activity books in a hilarious way and is suitable for everyone who has ever held a grudge and looked for a safe way to let it out. The book includes activities like the blame game (what’s wrong with your life – and whose fault it is), getting frank (the things you should have said then and there) and crying over spilled milk (no need to forget and forgive). Let’s get cranky!
