What are You So Grumpy About? by Tom LichtenheldA good book to read to a child when he or she is out of sorts. The book asks a series of questions to determine why the child is grumpy. Did you get up on the wrong side of the bed? Did you get a package on your birthday...and it turned out to be boring stuff? The pictures are humorous, but sometimes its difficult to read the text that is sometimes part of the picture, as in the washing machine with the words, Were all your favorite clothes in the laundry... The endpapers show sure cures for grumpiness, and the ending is cute, making this a potential mood-lifter.

I have only one word for this book, hilarious! It will be a favorite for a long time. If your child has a messy room, this book certainly is a must read! Kids will spend time just looking at every detail on each double-page spread and laugh out loud. And, for every complaint the child has a clever response. I love a good laugh, so any book that makes you laugh has to be good.
There are lots of excuses for being a grump, and this book is full of em. But in this book, the things that make you grumpy can actually be funny. So be careful, or you'll end up laughing at your own grumpiness. And, as you'll soon find out, it's hard to be giggly and grumpy at the same time. Tom Lictenheld is children's book author and illustrator.

Posted June 10, by Kathy Davie in Children's. I received this book for free from the library in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Dang, Lichtenheld starts off being funny with the endpapers! You could probably spend a couple of bedtime story-reading sessions just exploring the squares and talking about whether the activities would make you happy or grumpy or turn you from grumpy into happy, lol.
