The Grumble's Book

"An engaging tale of laughter versus grumpiness, illustrated in a nostalgic style… the enjoyable story should strike a positive note with young readers"- Kirkus Review


The Grumbles is a story to remind and empower children to stay positive even when times may seem grim. Using rhyme, humour and vibrant illustrations The Grumbles is a book to be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
