Item Description...
Gregory loves his grandfather very much, especially after a day at the zoo when, despite grumpy Grandpa's dire predictions--and because of his griping--Gregory and his church friends have a wonderful time.

Publishers Description
Gregory’s Grandpa Grumpy can’t stop grumbling; about breakfast, the possibility of rain, or even about the zoo, which Grandpa promised to take Gregory and his friends to. But in the end, Gregory knows Grandpa is grumbling in love.

Delightful!  Apr 17, 2010
I found this book in the clearance bin of our local grocery store. My 6 year old loved it! It is delightful both in words and illustration. My daughter loves looking at the pictures in this book since the animals are all doing funny things. I had not realized this book was written with a christian twist when I bought it. I really loved the mention of God. I went back the next day and bought "The Silly Family" and 'The Loud Family". I am going to order "The Messy family" here on this site also.
A lovable old grump teaches loving sacrifice  May 12, 2009
"Grandpa Grumpy's Family" is another in a series by Katherine Pebley O'Neal, illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith. Grandpa Grumpy seems like a miserable grouch, but by the end of the story we realize he's just a softy wrapped in rough edges. The introductory verse tells all: "The Lord looks deep down inside every heart." - 1 Chronicles 28:9.

The day starts with Grandpa Grumpy giving his bacon to Gregory. It's Gregory's favorite, but Grandpa says it's burned. After breakfast, Grandpa fills his pockets with butterscotch candies then takes Gregory and his friends to the zoo. There he gives them all his candies because they're "too sweet" for him. He also gives the best to each child throughout the day. Annie gets Grandpa's horse on the carousel because he says it's "too pink." Rory gets Grandpa's ride on the camels because they're "too bumpy." Dusty gets Grandpa's ice cream because it's "too messy." And on and on the day goes. After face-painting and a trip to the playground, four happy kids go home with Grandpa Grumpy. That night as he tucks Gregory in bed, Grandpa prays, "Thank You for our day together at the zoo, even though it was too hot, too tiring, too messy, too bumpy, too pink and too smelly for me." Gregory giggles then thanks God for his Grandpa Grumpy. "I love him so much." To which Grandpa replies, "Well, now I've got too much love. You take some of it." He wraps Gregory in a big bear hug.

The whimsical illustrations are saturated with vibrant colors and fun details.

What I Like: This reminds me of so many grumpy men I know. I can almost see the twinkle in Grandpa's eyes as I read this. It's funny! My kids love it. The illustrations are great, and the message is clear: people aren't always what they seem. Grandpa offers an entertaining example of sacrifice that stems from love.

What I Dislike: While adults understand Grandpa Grumpy's complaints are good-hearted, children might find this contradictory to Philippians 4:13 which says "Do everything without complaining or arguing." I'm not sure preschoolers fully grasp the difference between what Grandpa does and what we tell them not to do. If complaining and whining is a major problem in your house, you may want to employ discretion and additional commentary with this book.

Overall Rating: Very Good.

Tanya -- Christian Children's Book Review
Heartwarming!  Oct 10, 2008
My familiy loves this very special book. This is a book that crosses the generational lines. Every Grandpa and Grandma should have this book to read to their grandchildren. It is entertaining and endearing, but mostly it helps children see love in a new dimension.
Adorable  Jun 5, 2008
This is an adorable book for children; especially those with their own "grumpy grandpa". The illustrations are done very well and the storyline is adorable. It reminds me of my own dad. It is sometimes hard for older men to show their feelings, even to their grandkids. This book will help children understand that they are loved, even if it isn't communicated with words.
