Not yet rated | write a review
Jack has a grumpy grandpa, and he calls him that, even though he's not supposed to. But it's true. Grandpa is grumpy-and a little scary, too. He has hair where other people do not have hair, and his teeth don't stay in his mouth. You'd have to be crazy to live with Grandpa . . . or as brave as a lion tamer, like Jack's aunt and uncle. But the truth is, Grandpa didn't always have hair and teeth in weird places. In fact, Grandpa wasn't even always grumpy. A book that closes the generation gap one little bit, Grumpy Grandpa captures childhood and grandpa-hood with humor, hyperbole, and heart

About the Book

I have a grumpy grandpa!

(Shhhhh! Don't tell HIM that!)

A truly loveable and undeniably grumpy book to share with a grandpa, or anyone who's ever felt...grumpy!
