Bird wakes up feeling grumpy. Too grumpy to eat or play -- too grumpy even to fly. "Looks like I'm walking today," says Bird. He walks past Sheep, who offers to keep him company. He walks past Rabbit, who also could use a walk. Raccoon, Beaver, and Fox join in, too.
Before he knows it, a little exercise and companionship help Bird shake his bad mood. This winsome, refreshingly original picture book is sure to help kids (and grown-ups) giggle away theirs, too!
As a stay-at-home dad, Jeremy Tankard has weathered many boo boos with his young daughter. His debut picture book, GRUMPY BIRD, was named a Borders Original Voices finalist. He lives in Toronto, Ontario. You can visit him online at www.jeremytankard.com.
