No one who has lips will be able to readThe Blue Day Bookwithout smiling.

The Blue Day Bookis a wonderful collection of amusing, poignant animal photos and inspirational text designed to lift the spirits of anyone who's got the blues. No one who has lips will be able to read it without smiling; it's guaranteed.

The fact is, we all have our bad days-they are an intrinsic part of being human. As prescribed byThe Blue Day Bookin its delightful photo and text messages, the solution is to see each incident in perspective, recognize that our feelings of failure and loss are not unique, acknowledge the absurdities of our existence, and glory in the potential we all have.

In less than 100 sentences,The Blue Day Bookconveys this message with great compassion and humor. Its vehicle is charming black-and-white photographs of animals that are strangely human and completely free of judgment or pretension. The humble marriage of easy text and beautiful images takes the reader through the entire evolution of a blue day, examines what it feels like, what causes it, and how to get over it.
