Author: Louise Greig
Illustrator: Júlia Sardá

A young boy’s bad mood is swept away. Lyrical text and vibrant illustrations.

Our Young Reviewer Says:

I like that Ed decides not to be in a bad mood and I also like that he thinks twice about his bad mood. I like the pictures because they are very beautiful with the hot air balloons and the fair.

–Evelyn, 4 years old, Brooklyn, NY.
