A Bottle of Happiness

This is, well, it’s a story that will go round and round. I’m not sure how else to describe it.

Pippa Goodhart and Ehsan Abdollahi, A Bottle of Happiness

Pippa Goodhart’s story tells of the happy but poor people on one side of the mountain, and also the much more commercially minded people on the other side. There they buy things, but does it make them happy?

Maybe not.

The question is what happens when the two sides meet. Also, can you really bottle happiness?

Ehsan Abdollahi’s illustrations would not have surprised me fifty years ago. And still they are not retro as such, but the colourful and angular people in this book take me back to my childhood in some way.

Happiness is contagious. Maybe that’s it.
