The Little Book of Bad Moods for Mothers

Let’s face it: motherhood, in all its glory, gives you so many reasons for bad moods. From stretch marks to all-consuming guilt, from toddler tantrums to teenage sulks – sometimes you wish you could put just press pause and put it all on hold, but you can’t. This taboo-breaking adult activity book encourages all mothers to vent safely, continuing the cranky path of the international bestseller “The Little Book of Bad Moods”.

Suitable for all mothers, from those with screaming babies, to those with intolerable grownup children. List the dumbest parenting advice you’ve been given, the most useless purchases, and reveal your biggest mistakes as a mother!

Lotta Sonninen

Lotta Sonninen works as an editor of Finnish fiction and has also translated a lot of nonfiction. She got the idea for The Little Book of Bad Moods when working on yet another book on positivity. On her free time, she plays in a band and has tried to be funny on a stand-up comedy stage as well.

The Little Book of Bad Moods

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!
