Book Review: Grumpy Badger's Christmas by Paul Bright

✰✰✰✰✰ "Christmas is for sleeping..." declares the Grumpy Badger. There's excitement all around as the Grumpy Badger checks his pantry for supplies and settles in for a long winter's nap. However, the forest animals keep bothering him with their plans and preparations for a Christmas party.

All the Grumpy Badger really wants is some peace and quiet so he can get some sleep. But when the mole gets stuck at the top of a Christmas tree, will the Grumpy Badger sleep through the crisis? It seems that the Grumpy Badger knows just what to do. But can he make up for his grumpiness? Read this charming Christmas tale and find out.

The Bottom Line: Both the young and the young at heart will love Grumpy Badger's Christmas, a charming picture book that highlights the gifts of friendship and sharing. Children will love the adorable animals beautifully illustrated in acrylics by Jane Chapman. Highly recommended for all.
