Jim the chimpanzee is in a terrible mood for no good reason. His friends cant understand ithow can he be in a bad mood when its SUCH a beautiful day? They encourage him not to hunch, to smile, and to do things that make THEM happy. But Jim cant take all the advice... and has a bit of a meltdown. Could it be that he just needs a day to feel grumpy? Suzanne and Max Langs hilarious approach to this very important lesson is an excellent case study in the dangers of putting on a happy face and demonstrates to kids that they are allowed to feel their feelings (though they should be careful of hurting others in the process!).
