Product description


'Spirited and sharp, with witty, larky drawings, this is a highly recommended way to dismiss bad company' Independent 'Literally taking on a life of their own are the eponymous three Grumpies in Tamra Wight's and Ross Collins' book. The combination of surreal and the everyday is a Ross Collins specialty. Here, his angular watercolour illustrations and ingenious layouts follow the girl's rotten treatment by the enormous bloated creatures, and children can vicariously enjoy the Grumpies' naughtiness' Ted Dewan, TES 'This is suitable for children of three and over, and might just help when they have the Grumpies' Wendy Cope, Telegraph 'Words and quirky pictures work splendidly together in this story which everyone will recognise' Northern Echo


You know the feeling - a black cloud descends on the day and things just don't seem to go right. You spill your milk, trip up on a step, forget to take your homework with you to school. It could be that you have the Grumpies, just like the little girl in this charming and light-hearted book about a bad mood day. But she is not going to get stuck with the Grumpies. Oh no! She is going to see them off and rescue her good humour. So, if you do know that feeling and you do have one of those days, then this is just the book to help you snap right out of it.
