Have you ever woken up on the wrong side of the bed? Or just gotten a case of the crabbies? Anyone who’s ever been in a bad mood (and that’s pretty much everybody) can relate to Curly, who’s at the center of Lemony Snicket’s new picture book The Bad Mood and the Stick. When Curly’s bad mood prompts her to pick up a stick and poke her little brother with it, she sets into motion a whole series of events (which is something Snicket knows a lot about!) that vividly illustrates the sometimes surprising reverberations of a seemingly small action. Featuring Matthew Forsythe’s rainbow-hued watercolor illustrations, Snicket’s new book for young readers (and listeners!) is full of the humor and heart Snicket is famous for. We’re pleased to welcome back Lemony Snicket as this year’s BBF kids’ keynote, and we can’t wait for what’s sure to be a lively and unexpected start to families’ day at the Boston Book Festival!
