Sullen Sally

by Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove

$14.95 USD / $16.95 CAN
Sally woke up feeling blah, so she swallowed her smile, but her best friend Josie was there to help Sally through the day and help turn that frown upside down. The story reminds readers that nobody is expected to feel happy all the time. It provides an opportunity for adults and children to talk about feelings and the meaning of true friendship.

Sullen Sally is a celebration of friendship and uses a mix of lyrical rhymes and colorful illustrations, folds, flaps, wheels to turn, and amazing play value. The book is based on the award-winning song by kid-rocker Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove.
