PreS-Gr 1-Grumpy Cat isn't really grumpy-he's just lonely. He wants to make friends but doesn't know how. When he meets a lost, playful kitten, he almost misses his chance to befriend her by walking away. The kitten's cheerfulness almost comes to naught, until a near accident causes Grumpy Cat to save her. From there the path of true friendship runs smooth. This is a simple, familiar story greatly enhanced by bold, colorful illustrations on large areas of white space. Teckentrup creates remarkably expressive characters with a few select colors and, in particular, use of white space within the eyes. The uncluttered layout keeps readers focused on the interaction between the two cats so that even when they are small creatures in a big world, they are the center of attention. This is a winningly attractive book that will have broad appeal. Join it with Judith Byron Schachner's The Grannyman (Dutton, 1999) and Sam Lloyd's Mr. Pusskins (S & S, 2006) to celebrate feline friendship.-Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
