"My eye lit upon this book in the list of the few brave titles remaining in the publication schedule once the Coronavirus lockdown took hold. I’m so glad it stood its ground: there is balm for what ails us in the pages of this beautifully bound book. From meliorism (for when you’re worried about the world) to dolorifuge (for when you’re overcome with sadness) to the wonderfully expressive growlery (for when you’re in a bad mood) and antipelargy (for when you’re missing your family), there is wisdom for so many of the experiences of this strange, strange year.". Recommended by Maria Dickenson, Dubray Head office.

Open The Cabinet of Calm to find a comforting word that's equal to your troubles. Beginning with the griefs or discomforts we all feel on difficult days, Paul Anthony Jones offers us a matching linguistic remedy: fifty-one soothing words for troubled times. ; From 'melorism' to 'stound', 'carpe noctem' to 'opsimathy', these kinds words - alongside their definitions and their stories - will calm and inspire, comfort and delight, and provide fresh hope. ; Written with a trademark lightness of touch, The Cabinet of Calm shows us that we're not alone. Someone else has felt like this before and so there's a word to help, whatever the challenge. ; So much more than a book of words, The Cabinet of Calm will soothe your soul and ease your mind.

"How did we ever get along without him?" But one day the head librarian falls and breaks her arm, and the only way the lion can get help is to roar. And that is breaking the rules.
