LoveReading View on The Grump

Shortlisted for the Best Emerging Illustrator Award, Early Year Awards 2009


A delightful picture book full of humour about a very scary monster who is padding around the house at night.  As a little toddler follows the monster’s every move and adventure he discovers it’s not a scary monster at all.  It’s his dad! Phew.  Have you also read Daydream Dan and One, Two Cockatoo by the same author?


The Grump Synopsis

The Grump is very scary - he leaves a mess wherever he goes, gobbles up everything in sight, and has a deep, rumbling growl. But he may turn out to be not such a scary monster after all...
