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!

★★★★☆

Synopsis

Internet sensation Grumpy Cat’s epic feline frown has inspired legions of devoted fans. Celebrating the grouch in everyone, the Grumpy Cat book teaches the fine art of grumpiness and includes enough bad attitude to cast a dark cloud over the whole world.

 

My Thoughts

Well, my wife got me this book for Christmas, as I have several photos of Grumpy Cat in my “humor” picture folder on Facebook. And this book did not fail to make me laugh. There was everything from the typical Grumpy Cat picture with snide captions to a crossword puzzle where every answer was “no”. How great is that?!?

Definitely a gag gift book and only meant for those who appreciate Grumpy Cat and his brand of humor. Others, the unwashed hoi polio, will find this creative gem going straight over their little heads and they will complain about how mean it is.

Grumpy Cat, and I, only have this to say in reply: A, B, C, D, E, F, U.

Yep folks, another win for common sense, pessimism and dark macabre humor.

I deliberately chose to review this book first this year, as I knew it would make me laugh and set just the right tone for the rest of the year.

If the following picture doesn’t make you laugh, this book is NOT for you:
