I’m so pleased that @randomhousekids is the publisher of the American co-edition of my book. I’ve got many questions from people about this one. As you can see the title is “When Sadness is at your door” and the cover is also a little bit different. It also has a dust jacket, with a little bio and photo of me (made by my talented friend @signe_fotar , check out her profile for some beautiful landscape photography) . I don’t think this is very uncommon, for books to change cover in different countries? The USA is a different market after all.
I can assure you, however, the insides of this book are exactly the same. For those that wonder and have asked me about it before.
From what I gather, the book is well received in the USA and if you want you can read some of the reviews, of which I put some links on one page on my website (link in bio). Seeing them all together, which isn’t even counting all those mentions on social media, is quite overwhelming and I can hardly believe I made this book that people write about. I’m just pretending I find this all very normal and try to go along with it…

We know that talking to your kids about feelings, especially sadness, is NOT easy. In this book, author and illustrator Eva Eland gives sadness a shape and a face, and encourages the reader to give it a name, all of which helps to demystify sadness and distinguish it from ourselves. Shop our #linkinbio for the must-have read.
