Grumpy Monkey's Little Book of Grumpiness (Board book)
In this hilarious original board book for the littlest grumpy monkey, Jim learns that sometimes it's hard to get over a bad case of grumpiness, but having a good friend can help.
What can make a grumpy monkey less grumpy? A ball? A banana? A rainbow? How about a frog in a fluffy wig? Nothing seems to work, but fortunately for young readers Jim's frown is finally turned upside down with the help of his good friend Norman.
With just a few words and truly expressive artwork Suzanne and Max Lang give toddlers the perfect funny book to help them deal with a grumpy mood.

Stork’s On the Hook is a superbly crafted contemporary drama with intense situations, violent confrontations and believable reticence to act that spin Hector, our HS sophomore chess wiz protagonist, into an almost debilitating lust for revenge after tragedy strikes , then throws the story into an unexpected plot twist. A simple, but weighty question - “Do you have anyone you don’t want to disappoint?” stirs the dynamic “balance” and upends the tension as the heart-pounding climax races to a satisfying end. Give this stunner to fans of Angie Thomas, Jason Reynolds and Matt Mendez. - Reviewed by Maureen
