Grumpy days don't have to stay that way...

Elephant wakes up grumpy - until ding, dong! What’s in the surprise box at the front door? A hat! HOORAY FOR HAT! Elephant marches off to show Zebra, but Zebra is having a grumpy day, too - until Elephant shares his new hat and cheers up his friend. Off they march to show Turtle! The parade continues as every animal brightens the day of a grumpy friend.

"This book is a lovely celebration of small acts of kindness (and excellent hats). The quirky story and colourful illustrations will make the whole family smile. Little ones will love the repetition and following the parade of animals as they spread some cheer. I would also encourage you to wear your own special hat just for reading!"

Lynsey Rogers, Early Years Administrator
