NOPE. A white man walks into a cleaning business and demands labor of a brown woman (his pants are muddy and he wants them cleaned). She explicitly tells him no and to LITERALLY keep his pants on, but he doesn't care at all and demands she do this work for him regardless. She finally gives in, and t Leggi tutto
An angry man walks into a dry cleaner with muddy pants. Against the dry cleaner's wishes, he takes off his pants, then chats her up. They fall in love and get married. Odd.
I like the idea, a bad mood is passed on, how true. I really like the bad mood cloud, very cute, the illustrations are skilful and interesting, 5 stars for those. The storyline was interesting and we both read this one independently and it kept us engaged and wanting to know what happens. If the sce Leggi tutto
As many other reviewers have noted, the problematic interaction between Old Man Lou and the dry cleaner Mrs. Durham really ruins this book. It wasn't a terribly engaging or inventive book to begin with, but when Lou takes off his pants after Mrs. Durham tells him not to, and she then finds it endear Leggi tutto
First off, this book just doesn't make any sense to me. People get in a better mood once something nasty happens? What? But the real, glaring issue is that an incredibly rude man takes off his pants after a woman tells him not to and she somehow is won over by his underwear clad body and marries him? Leggi tutto
What?!😳 So much is problematic in this PB that I don't know where to begin. The worst? A white, angry man walks into a dry cleaning business, demands a woman of color who owns the place "take that pencil outta your ear...wash these pants and wash them quick", drops his pants...and she falls in love Leggi tutto
“Holy moly!” I love what Lemony Snicket brings to the picture book world. His quirky, weird, wonderful stories add something different to the lessons and sweetness for kids. BUT his humor walks a fine, fine line between imaginative and strange. A line that makes him stand out from the crowd. A line Leggi tutto
Somehow all the journal reviews of this book missed the jolly take on sexual harassment and disregarding consent--no doesn't mean no. In fact, when you take off your pants in front of a woman and she sees your underpants, she's happy and not mad and she falls in love and you get married and everyone Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed this funny tale of how a bad mood is passed around, and all the things that made people happy again. Matthew Forsythe's art was the perfect companion.
Problematic read (thanks to Books for Littles for naming what was bothering me): not only does this book seem to say one can only feel better if they foist their bad mood off on someone else, there's a really horrifying bit where a white man takes off his pants in front of a woman of color -- who te Leggi tutto
