ALWAYS SO GRUMPY is a cute interactive book in the vein of THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK that invites children to try to cheer up their headgehog friend. However, he warns the reader that he is always so grumpy and so will not be cheered. Children are invited to try to make a funny noise or tell a joke, tickle him, and help him nap by rocking the book. Eventually, the hedgehog confesses that what he really needs is a hug and reassurance that he is loved.

This is conceptually a simple book that invites children to explore their own moods and the things that might cheer them up when they are grumpy. The text speaks directly to the reader and gives action items for them to interact with the hedgehog in a manner of other beloved children's books. The focus on emotions and finding ways to cope with negative emotions is an important one that invites self-reflection by example.

Perfect for toddlers who love to join in a story, ALWAYS SO GRUMPY is a cute read about emotions, friendship, and some actionable fun.
