Title: The Little Grumpy Cat that Wouldn’t
Series: Grumpy Cat
Author: Little Golden Book
Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Genre: Children
Pages: 24
Format: Board Book

 

Synopsis:

Grumpy Cat meets lots of other friendly little animals and has a horrible time until they leave her alone.

 

My Thoughts:

Another cute little Grumpy Book by Little Golden Books. Unfortunately, Little took the easy route and simply used the better known Grumpy Cat meme answers whenever one of the friendly little animals would ask Grumpy Cat a question. Whether that answer made the most sense or not. Dinged ½ a star just for that.

My second, and definitely biggest issue, is how this book tries to brainwash the children with it’s politically correct gender politics. Grumpy Cat is referred to as a female. Now, just because the real life grumpy cat is a female and it is a female in A Very Grumpy Christmas doesn’t actually mean that Grumpy Cat IS a female. Grumpy Cat is kind of like zen, more of a state of mind than a state of actually being. You wouldn’t go up to a zen monk who was meditating, push him over and feel him up, would you? At least, I hope you wouldn’t. If you would, please don’t follow my blog any more! Dinged ½ a star for that.

Other than that, this was another great instance of Grumpy Cat standing up for all of us who hate other people and company and pretty much life itself. We have our Champion now!

★★★★☆

  3. Aw, it looks so cute! I like Grumpy Cat!

    Never even thought of Grumpy Cat’s gender before to be honest. I didn’t even know the ‘original’ is a female. Yeah, they maybe just shouldn’t have mentioned anything there. It’s not important for the book anyways

    Wow, that looks pretty cute 🙂 I’ll get it for my nieces if it ever gets published here, and I can bet he’ll be male in Polish edition… despite the butterfly/bow on its tail 😉

  5. I love the picture of the disgruntled cat, and keep thinking I could use it as a screensaver on the work computer for the days when I’m in a bad mood… 😀

      I like googling grumpy cat meme on google. While some are obviously stupid, some of the better ones really show how creative people can be. And excoriating the human race as a whole is always a plus in my books 🙂

  7. Omg haha.. this review! I think I love it almost as much as I adore Grumpy Cat. Although I never had thought to assign “her” a gender. I agree, it is more a state of being 😛
