Description
The debut book of Jeremy Tankard's high-flying Bird series! 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. Praised by the Wall Street Journal as "comic perfection," this winsome, refreshingly original picture book is sure to help kids (and grown-ups) giggle away their grumpies, too! Bird's impeckably crafted, hilarious melodramas continue in the Grumpy Bird board book, Boo Hoo Bird, Hungry Bird, and coming in 2018, Sleepy Bird. Awards and Praise for Grumpy Bird:An LA Times Favorite Book of 2007"Comic perfection." -The Wall Street Journal"Hilarious." -The LA Times"Tankard's illustrations alone will cheer up any bad mood." -Parent & Child Magazine, Teachers' Picks, April 2007"A way out of a bad mood for surly birds, whatever their species." -Publishers Weekly"A good addition to storytimes." -School Library JournalPraise for Boo Hoo Bird:"Mood master Jeremy Tankard succeeds again." -Time Out New York"Like Mo Willems…Tankard takes the worldview of the toddler seriously while appreciating its humor.

This selection will resonate." -Kirkus Reviews"With its blend of realism and exaggeration, condolence and humor, this may well turn a sympathetic 'Boo hoo hoo!' into a family standby in times of bonkitude." -BCCBPraise for Hungry Bird:"Bird is over-the-top, self-absorbed, melodramatic, and hilarious…A delightful romp." -Kirkus Reviews"Picky eaters will be laughing along and trying new things in no time with this funny installment of Bird and friends. A recommended purchase perfect for storytime or small group sharing that will be in high demand." -School Library Journal Jeremy Tankard is the creator of the Los Angeles Times Favorite Book Grumpy Bird and its companions Boo Hoo Bird, Hungry Bird, and Sleepy Bird, and the illustrator of several acclaimed picture books, including Rachel Vail's Piggy Bunny and David LaRochelle's It's a Tiger!
