A field guide to the fierce but adorable Badmoodicus grumpasauricus, a creature with remarkable similarities to a grumpy child.Have you ever met a Grumpasaurus? I bet you have. In fact, you may even have one in your own home. Want to know what makes them tick? This handy guide, meticulously researched and lovingly illustrated, tells you everything you need to know. Above all they should be handled with care-otherwise they can become VERY loud and VERY fearsome. In this appealingly modern and clever picture book, a field guide format is applied to the study of the cranky child . . . er, rather, the GRUMPASAURUS . . . who, in spite of himself, will win your heart.
Edward Hemingway is the author-illustrator of Bad Apple: A Tale of Friendship and Bad Apple's Perfect Day, among other picture books, and has also illustrated books for adults. Originally from Bozeman, Montana, he now lives and works in Brooklyn. Visit his website at .

Editorial Reviews

Kids will sympathize, parents will recognize, siblings will familiarize." -Kirkus "The book's knowing sense of humor, entertaining oil paintings, and pseudoscientific conceit give the term grumpasaurus a good chance of making its way into many families' lexicons." -Publishers Weekly "
