STARRED REVIEW Messer has arrived at a fine combination here: few words and images, but not too few, and well-chosen to pave the way out of the grumps. The artwork possesses substance and delicacy. Really well turned, with balance, momentum, and all the right notes.--Kirkus Reviews starred review
STARRED REVIEW This charming account of handling emotions is a great addition to other children's books about grumpy behavior.--School Library Journal starred review
