This is another sad book and it was fiction book I liked Eddie even though he died I would recommend it to someone

it was good

Thought provoking, knowing you are not alone in your feelings when you feel sad and ideas of what you can do when you're feeling sad. This didn't make me feel sad, it made me realise everyone feels sad and thats okay. An excellent book.

It talks a lot about why Michael Rosen is sad. There are a lot of repeated phrases.

I found this book is sad but really good. It helps you cope with sadness and to understand that you are not the only one who suffers from sadness. I would recommend this book to age 6+.

"I really liked this book. There was a cloud on him. Everyone is sad. Tomorrow I will read it again. He'll still be sad but that's ok. Everyday he does something good. Like me when I play favourite thing at the end of the day."

It was about a man being sad because he lost his son and mother... People he loved the most. How he thought of ways to be happy to avoid being sad. Very real about how lots of people may be feeling sad and then try to be happy

If i was him i would try and make some friends then that would make him happier

It is a very good book and lt describe that he is sad

It was strange how sometimes he knows what is making him sad but sometimes he doesn't.

It was a bit odd but I still liked it.

This book is too hard for me.

It was a little bit sad but I would recommend the book to someone else.

I liked this book because Michael is being free and telling his true feelings for his Mum and Son after they died

it was good and really helped

Lovely, thoughtful, alternative sort of book. Afterall life isn't always happy. It can help to talk about the things that are sad in order to learn to live with such things.

So moving.

This book is very good for someone who has lost people and do not know how to be happy again.

It was a very sad book but it was good to see different ways to handle being sad.

It basically tells you being sad is OK.
