Six Core Emotions +1

As a general rule, there are six core emotions that all other emotions are based off of: happy, sad, disgust, anger, fear, and surprise. While doing my author visits a student once asked about just a 'natural' emotion. How he felt most of the time. It is the straight line face, your baseline. So the characters in 'Henry and His Manners' all have seven emotions floating around in their bellies! And guess what? The word emotion has seven letters! I can't take credit for this realization, but my illustrator Charlie Martin can. #emotionbellybooks
