A five-year-old wakes up in a foul mood and is followed throughout his day by grumpy-faced gray clouds that want him to join up with them. His funk begins with oatmeal at breakfast, then an encounter with his sister in which he yells and grabs back his bear, followed by a refusal to wave to friends at the playground and a little kick of sand in their direction. More and more grouchies accumulate overhead. Inevitably, the day ends with an emotional meltdown: his puzzle pieces won't fit, and he yells at his father. At the end of this frustrating day, his caring Dad says, "the grouchies could be strong and make their way sound good. But rude and grumpy actions are never understood." Fortunately, the child wakes the next morning followed by yellow, smiling faces after having support, love, and understanding from his parents. The text and artwork engage children with rhymes embedded within the prose and simple cartoon drawings. The story is followed by extensive endnotes to parents explaining much about the emotional life of children and counseling that a grumpy child may be experiencing many things, among them fear, feelings of anxiety, sadness, guilt, even hunger. A useful book for caregivers.--Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA --School Library Journal, March 2010
