This highly anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed and bestselling picture book In a Jar stars one little bunny dealing with some very big feelings.

Llewellyn does not like to feel afraid or sad, angry, lonely, or embarrassed. And so he comes up with a brilliant plan: he tucks each of his feelings into jars and hides them away where they won’t bother him anymore. But when he gets in trouble in class, Llewellyn finds he needs to put away excitement too. And when joy is quickly followed by disappointment, he decides to get rid of joy as well. After a while, Llewellyn walks around not feeling much of anything at all. And what happens when his emotions refuse to be bottled up any longer?

In this richly illustrated and universally relatable picture book, Llewellyn soon discovers that life is more colorful when he sets his emotions free. And only then, by facing and embracing each of his feelings, is he finally able to let them go.

Full-color illustrations were done with watercolor, pencil, colored pencils, ink, and digital media.

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-While in Marcero's previous title, In a Jar, little bunny Llewellyn collected things he loved; this time around he is trying to contain his gargantuan emotions. When he is extremely frightened, exuberantly excited, or steaming mad, he shoves all his color-coded emotions into jars and locks them in a closet. Yet, it isn't long before he discovers the dangers of his methods. With illustrative and storytelling elements of a comic book or graphic novel, Llewellyn and his emotions bounce off the page. While somewhat similar in concept to Anna Llenas's The Color Monster, Marcero offers a new spin on exploring one's emotions and promotes the importance of sharing them with others. It is a valuable lesson for young readers, and probably a vital reminder for adults as well. Peppered with rich vocabulary, the text itself is simultaneously simple and profound. VERDICT This is a needed addition to any collection, especially those looking to add titles with a focus on emotional well-being.-Kaitlin Malixi
