The Grump

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...


"A domestic comedy wittily exploring a child's night-time fears, The Grump also captures the kind of disturbance familiar to families with small children...detailed and comforting illustrations bring the home to life, providing a safe place to explore fears of an intruder."
Julia Eccleshare - Guardian

"Lovely line and wash...a lightness of touch and great handling of the paint...good use of light and shadow with unusual viewpoints. The illustrations glow...great colours."
Neal Layton - Neal Layton

"A gentle family joke that invites young readers to join in on the telling."
Louise Stothard - Carousel
