Grumpy Frog Synopsis

Grumpy Frog is not grumpy. He loves green, and he loves to hop, and he loves winning. But what happens when Grumpy Frog doesn't win, or encounters - horror of horrors - a Pink Rabbit?

Join Grumpy Frog as he learns about compromise and tolerance, friendship and the power of saying sorry. A hilarious book with a twist in the tail about getting - and getting rid of - the grumps, Grumpy Frog subtly teaches the importance of being kind to all.

Grumpy Frog Press Reviews

My favourite yet of Vere's brilliantly irreverent picture books. One young frog loves the colour green, as well as hopping and, of course, winning. But what happens when things don't go to plan? Contrary he may be, but this wonderfully expressive little fellow will have you charmed. Infectiously funny, it's a dream to read aloud, with a positive message about friendship, compromise and saying sorry. And children will adore the snappy twist in the tail. -- Fiona Noble Bookseller

shot through with Vere's trademark irreverent wit, which will keep adult readers amused through multiple readings – Michelle Pauli, The Guardian, on Max and Bird
