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.

A great story about getting bird out of a funk. Very relatable for kids and parents. The illustrations are fun and colorful, I just wish the library hadn't put a pocket on the last page. It doesn't cover any major parts of the illustration but I still found it frustrating. Read full review

Jeremy Tankard's story let the children know that it is okay to have a bad days just like the bird. It shows that children have feelings also like everyone else. That tomorrow can be a better day for learning. Read full review
