Description Description A hilarious exploration of grumpiness: this is a book for any child who has ever woken up to find everything unreasonably annoying.

Today is a terrible day for Wolfie: it's cloudy (there is a single cloud), the water in the bubble bath is ice cold, there aren't enough chocolate chips in the cookies, and everyone else seems to be having an amazing day (lucky them). No one understands Wolfie at school. But then Penguin comes along... and she does understand. Suddenly things start to get a whole lot better. 

This is a story about how when you're feeling misunderstood, sometimes all it takes to change your perspective completely, is a like-minded friend.

A wonderful and relatable story about the loneliness that comes with feeling grumpy and how a friend can give a rainy or cloudy day, a sunny new spin. It reassures children while encouraging them to look out for others going through a hard time.

Funny for both children and adults alike—while children will delight at the funny dissonance between text and image, the parents will recognise the all too relatable tale of out-of-proportion toddler grumpiness.

Drawn in a simplistic, cute style that will put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces, this sweet book is a visual treat. Watch as Wolfie’s striking frowny face spreads giggles from reader to listener. A lovely book that reflects unexpected crabby feelings perfectly and can comfort on days when kids have got up on the wrong side of the bed.
