Bird wakes up grumpy. Too grumpy to eat, play, or even fly. "Looks like I'm walking today," says Bird grumpily. All of this grumpy walking piques the interest of his friends and soon Sheep, Rabbit, Raccoon, Beaver, and Fox are walking alongside him. Somewhere along the way Bird realizes that his friends are still there, but his mood is gone, proving that sometimes grumpy needs company! This bright book can be read again and again to help kids (and grown-ups) giggle away their darkest moods.
