Our new book in focus is Grumpy Frog by Ed Vere.
In this striking picture book we meet a very grumpy frog with so many issues – he only likes green things, absolutely hates pink, won’t go swimming because the water is blue or bouncing because the trampoline is yellow. He does enjoy hopping and racing, just as long as he wins of course. However when he unsurprisingly ends up with no friends, grumpy frog feels pretty sorry for himself. How will he react when a (pink!) rabbit offers to play with him?
A funny story about feeling grumpy, compromising, saying sorry and making friends. A book with lots of appeal and resonance for adults as well as children.
We were very pleased to be interviewed by Just Imagine Story Centre for one of their
brilliant ‘In the Reading Corner’ magazine podcasts recently on the theme ‘Reading in the Early Years’.
