An unruly cast of emotions come alive in this romping dreamworld, a place Maurice Sendak's Wild Things could call home

Curiosity, a lithe and floppy-eared creature, perches above the open world and gazes out with a zippy blend of hope, wonder, and longing. From the tip of a chimney, we bound into the quiet and mischievous world of feelings, meeting a troupe of tufted creatures as we go. Sympathy helps snails cross a sidewalk to safety, fear pirouettes in an attempt to camouflage with wallflowers, and pleasure reclines across a doily-donned reading chair, sipping a cup of tea. Elsewhere, our insecurities - pesky, cavorting beings - build intricate cages and stride about with clattering sets of keys. Tina Oziewicz's words hum with truth, and Aleksandra Zajac's illustrations bloom and burst with charming details like a sail constructed out of a pair of billowing long johns or a red slipper falling from a contented paw. Taking in the perfect harmony of this book is like taking a long gulp from a trusty thermos and filling up with warmth. What Feelings Do When No One's Looking surprises and soothes, inspires us to feel.
