"A sturdy addition to the bad-mood shelf." -Kirkus

This wordless picture book is a thought-provoking exploration of disruptive feelings. Readers may interpret these as anger, anxiety, or even a creative brain storm.

Follow along as a mood pesters a young boy and ends up rubbing off on all those around him. After a frustrating day under his version of a little dark cloud, he discovers that ultimately working through your feelings and emotions begins with you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhance your imagination 5 out of 5 stars! Being the avid reader I am, I have always been sceptical of wordless picture books. I couldn't understand the reason for a wordless book. Children's book or not, it just didn't make any sense to me. What is a book without words? That is until I sat down to read "The Brain Storm" ...with my two most wonderful boys! Their expressions said it all. A wordless book opens the story to your own interpretation. After flipping through the book I asked my oldest who is nearing 10 years old, for his thoughts on the story and what he thought it meant. It was incredible to see just how close our ideas were. I can't wait till I can sit down with my youngest when he is a bit older to get his interpretation. He's only 2... just a little too young to get feedback from just yet. What's even more amazing is no matter how many times you flip through this book, you will have a different story run through your imagination each time. Depending on your mood in that moment. We will be able to enjoy this story for years to come and never get tired of it! Wordless children books----- Perhaps my age was getting the best of me. Maybe I was losing connection with my own imagination. One things for sure... The Brain Storm changed that! Thank you so much to Thomas Allen & Son Ltd. for sending me this copy for review! It will bring a great amount of joy to my family! And of course thank you all for reading. Your Changed Book Worm -Nichole

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A wonderful resource for discussing feelings with children This wordless picture book provides a great way to talk to children about being in a bad mood. How it feels, how it affects other and how to handle it. With simple illustrations we follow a young boy as his scribbling cloud of darkness follows him through the day.
