Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST!! I love this little picture book. It is perfect for small children but the ending makes it ideal to read to adults too and everyone in between! A wonderful book and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We read it everynight!! My one year old loves this book! At first I thought it was because I was doing crazy voices for the animals, but even when other people are visiting, she brings them the book to read too! I am in love with the illustrations, wish I had friends like Bird does, and do not mind reading this book every night before my Daughters bedtime. I tell all of my Mama friends about this book, and I haven't heard any complaints yet :-) Great Job Mr.Tankard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Done This book was written to help children see that they can change a grumpy mood. We follow Bird as he begins his day grumpy and tries to stay grumpy. Jeremy Tankard has written and illustrated a great book, with fun, bright and vibrant colors. It is a great story book for the younger members of your families, or as a cure for your own bad mood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read! I am in love with this book: the story, the art. Bird is annoyed with the world and ends up happy with his friends in just a few short pages. Grumpy Bird is a must-read for anyone who needs a laugh. I'm not kidding - and I DON'T HAVE KIDS. Enough said? I bought it yesterday (Jan 19) at the retail store and I might buy a couple more because they're less online.
