Translating Emotions in Children’s Picture Books

Anne-Marie Dionne

Abstract


The translation of the emotions of the characters in picture books is done not only by the text, but also by the illustrations, as well as by the relationship between those two components. Hence, in order to analyze the iconotextual relationships that are translating emotions, we looked at three picture books produced by the author and illustrator Anthony Browne. We were able to find examples for the translation of joy, sadness, anger, and fear. Such picture books provide good support to young children for developing their understanding of the emotional world.
