"Any parent of a small child knows that the best cure for a youngster's bad temper is to redirect his or her attention toward something humorous. Lichtenheld demonstrates just how this works in a collection of large, double-spread cartoons depicting a variety of situations that might cause a rotten mood...Lichtenheld's big, bold, broadly comic art style...is well suited to the tone of the text and has solid child appeal. Give this one to grumpy kids, or to anyone in need of cheering up." -Booklist

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for very young children Although I love Tom Lichtenheld's Cloudette a lot, but the style of illustration in this book is not adorable to me. Not a good choice for young children

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!
