Grumpy Cat

Grumpy CatGrumpy Cat by Britta Teckentrup

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Couldn't resist Grumpy Cat propped up on display at the library. That face says it all.

Spoiler alert: Grumpy Cat is really just lonely. This is a pleasant story for young children. It's nice for gently teaching the idea that sometimes there are reasons for behavior that we don't know about. Giving people, and cats, the benefit of the doubt is a topic that comes up frequently in our home. Cat and Kitten are cuddled up together at the end of the story, "They had each found a friend. And Cat was never grumpy again....Well, almost never." The touch of realism in that last phrase keeps the story from becoming too "happily ever after."
