"Spirited and sharp, with witty, larky drawings, this is a highly recommended way to dismiss bad company." The Independent
"I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning," she begins. "Grumpy, Grumpier and Grumpiest were waiting for me." In Ross Collins's pictures, the Grumpies are subversive looking blobs with bulging eyes and protruding teeth. They are funny rather than sinister, and that is the whole point. The central character spends all day trying to get rid of them, but only succeeds when she begins to laugh at them. This is suitable for children of three and over, and might just help when they have the Grumpies." The Telegraph
