(Warning: the dog is very long.)

Praise For…


"[V]ery well delivered. The suspense and hinted expectation that every page turn may reveal Lucy’s head does not get old and, in fact, provides some solid laughs when Lucy punks her readers…. [It] will effortlessly invite participation with young audiences, giving the book great read-aloud appeal for teachers, caregivers, and dog-loving librarians alike."—Booklist

"A cheerful, good-humored bit of a stretch."—Kirkus

“Amusing and quippy, with some rib-nudging humor…a terrific read aloud.”—BCCB

Grumpy Monkey is one of my favorite picture books about emotions, and feeling feelings that you just don’t know what to do with! We all have those days, and Monkey is having one of those days—real bad! He’s grumpy, and all his friends just want to help make him feel better, but it only makes him feel worse! Along the way, Monkey learns about his feelings, and that sometimes you have to let yourself feel exactly what you feel…and very soon, you’ll feel better again. Don’t miss the lovely companion books, Grumpy Monkey Party Time and Grumpy Monkey Up All Night!
