Deep in the darkest forests, under rustling leaves, live the fairies. You probably think that fairies are good, kind and sweet. Well, a lot of them are. These helpful fairies take care of the forest and they're happy to do it. But I'm sorry to tell you that some of the fairies, particularly the littlest ones, are GRUMPY.
I mean proper grumpy.
I mean foot-stompy, frowny, bottom-lip-sticking-outy kind of grumpy.
I mean ‘it’s just one of those days’ grumpy.
But these grumpy fairies better watch out. There's a goblin about, and grumpy fairies happen to be a goblin's favourite food…
Characterful illustrations transport readers to the animal-filled world of the fairy's forest, and easy to read text is perfect for young readers.
This wonderful, funny debut will bring a smile to the smallest (and grumpiest) of children.
