The Treacherous Tingling Tanglelow Trial: The Tanglelows Three by Greg McGoon, the third book of the series, tackles the topic of dealing with emotions in an aesthetic manner that will captivate readers and help them understand their moods. The Tingles are special and normally they sparkle and glisten and cheer with glee. It is only when they are totally twisted and tangled that they end up looking haunted. They yearn desperately for connection and they whine when they are distraught. Though The Tingles long to bond, they are still stuck between a cloud and a stone, and they start to quiver when bonds are made and scatter and hide as Tanglelows do. They want to unpick the big knot that is blocking love from flowing freely. Will The Tingles be able to find love and play freely as before?

The Treacherous Tingling Tanglelow Trial by Greg McGoon is a wonderful and creative way to help young readers handle their emotions and moods in a positive and happy way instead of whining and complaining. Jessa Orr makes the concept palpable and attractive to readers with her colorful and fabulous illustrations, making the emotions of The Tingles distinctive, real, and relatable. It is also a good way to guide children on the complexities of emotions, feelings, thoughts, and moods, and the rhyming verses give a good pace and rhythm to the story. The powerful ending is absolutely energizing and what is really needed in the world today. It is definitely a must-have on library shelves and in personal collections because of the concept and the message conveyed to readers in a meaningful way.
