The Grumpy Pets by Kristine Lombardi


The Grumpy Pets by Kristine Lombardi

Billy's not like the other kids. He's a bit moody, a bit cranky, a bit ...grumpy. In hopes of cheering him up, his mum takes him and his sister to the animal rescue one Saturday morning. All the animals are cute and playful, but they're a little too happy for Billy's taste. When Billy wanders into another section of the store, however, he stumbles across a different group of animals awaiting adoption. These pets are grouchy and scruffy. In fact, they seem downright grumpy--just like Billy! He catches the eye of a particularly grumpy pup--could this be the friend Billy has been looking for? Grumpy Pets shows that there's a perfect match for everyone, if you stay true to yourself.
