One day Nino comes back from school feeling very sad because her best friend won’t speak to her anymore. She doesn’t know why and feels very badly. In this volume, Ninon struggles to understand the concept of happiness. What makes you feel unhappy? How to react to the feeling and overcome it?
Through chapters such as “It’s Easy to Be Unhappy”, “Choosing to Be Happy”, “Beyond Suffering”, and using excerpts from the Myth of Sisyphus and the Buddhist tale of Siddhartha, among other sources, the author and the illustrator show how Nino works her way through several levels of understanding to find her own answers to one of life’s big issues.
