Review quote

"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 *show more
