This unique visual thesaurus is designed to help writers of all ages to develop their emotional literacy.

The book focuses solely upon emotions. Spanning circa 140 emotional words it is divided into three sections: ranges of emotions (offering a visual spectrum to be referred to by writers unsure of the intensity of feelings), synonyms (each image has similar images and words underneath it along with a sentence to help a new writer see how it can be embedded into a story), and antonyms - opposite pairs of feelings that are useful when wishing to create contrast in a storyline.

This book will be a vital reference for every classroom and can be used individually or in whole class activities.
