Bad cloud rising

Lemony Snicket and illustrator Matthew Forsythe get snarky with a girl named Curly and an angry little cumulus


* The Bad Mood and the Stick

Lemony Snicket and Matthew Forsythe, ill. Tundra Books, Ages 4–8

IT ALL STARTS with a very grumpy girl named Curly, who finds a stick lying on the ground. Curly has the great misfortune of walking by an ice cream store without getting any ice cream and her ensuing bad mood manifests as a dour-faced, scribbly cloud above her head. This angry little cumulus motivates Curly to pick up the stick and take out her frustration by poking her little brother. The bad-mood cloud then floats off to infect someone else and the stick lies ready for another adventure.
