The Catalan illustrator Montse Gisbert has created a kind of encyclopaedic picture
book for small readers. It describes basic human feelings and states of mind with
the help of examples based on a childs experience, such as the fear of an

outside in the sandbox with a friend because it is raining. Each double-page spread
of the small square book offers a short text complemented by humorous and poetic
pictures in delicate pastel colours that aptly illustrate the situations described.
