Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny and extemely witty I ran into this book a little while ago and was taken by all the fun, wit and detail that was wrapped between the covers. The illustrations are wonderful and I guess the author and I have a similar sense of humour. I have recommended this book to many others and purchased extra copies to enrich our bookshelves in our bookshop where we promote fine children's literature. This book will lighten you up and put a smile on your face. Pass it out to the all the "grumps" in your life. They'll be glad you did!
