Synopsis

A Grumpy Feet (Lily and Bear) by Lisa Stubbs

Once in a while - and it's happened to all of us - one wakes up grumpy! For no good reason. This is the story of what happens to Lily when she wakes up with 'Grumpy Feet' . Things are not going her way. The teapot is too dribbly, her crayons are too stubby. The only thing she can do is draw her friend Bear. And when he comes to life and comes off the paper, he knows exactly what is wrong and what to do to cheer her up! He makes a moon car and takes her off to the moon, where they polish stars, drink cocoa and look for a baby unicorn. He turns Lilys grumps into the jumps!

About the Author

Lisa Stubbs

As a child, Lisa watched hours of art shows on TV, doodling away with felt-tips in front of a small fire munching cookies. After studying graphic design and working as a greetings card illustrator, Lisa pressed pause on her career to bring up 3 wonderful children: Lily, Skyla and Sonny. She is now a freelance illustrator, screen printer, and happy mum dancing in her artist studio in the hills of the Holmvalley, Yorkshire. England.

Lisa wanted to explore her children’s pictures and their child-like way of looking at the world, seeing everything as fresh and new and brilliant – Lily and Bear was born.

What’s your favourite children’s book? There is no way I can narrow it down to just one. I love all the classics: Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr and The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

What’s your favourite song? My favourite ‘feel-good dance-around-the-kitchen-when-no-one-is-looking’ songs are: ‘Skindo Le Le’ by Alive! ‘Don't Stop Me Now’ by Queen, ‘I Got Life’ by Nina Simone, ‘Oh Happy Day’ by the Edwin Hawkins Singers and ‘The Candy Man’ by Sammy Davis Jr.

Name one thing you couldn’t live without (not including people) Isn’t it obvious? Books and music – but that’s two things! I think this would be my artist materials – my pencils and sketch books. I’ll never stop drawing.
