Emojis are an excellent way of communicating ideas or feelings in a succinct way!

Click + then open the Pen tool. 

Click on the emoji icon in the toolbar and you can choose from hundreds of emoji icons to add to you page. Once you've added one to the page, you can resize it as you would any normal picture in Book Creator, using the blue handles.

You can also add emojis from the keyboard on an iPad or the devices that emojis enabled. However, we'd always recommend adding them using the method above so they get added to the page as an image rather than within a text box.

Changing skin tone

You can change the skin tone of an emoji by clicking on the yellow hand in the top right hand corner of the emoji picker.
