Pavlo Gets the Grumps

By Natalia Shaloshvili

A book-shaped hug that we all need on a day when everything just feels BLAH.

Pavlo does not feel like going to the park. Not today. He does not want to go swimming. He even says no to the cinema. What's going on, Pavlo? Pavlo's got the grumps. This comforting picture book takes a look at bad days and big emotions, and reminds us that we all have grumpy days sometimes but no feeling lasts forever. Natalia Shaloshvili's expressive illustrations are sad and funny at the same time, reassuring little ones that we are loved by our family and friends even when we're not our happiest selves. Pavlo guides young children on their emotional learning journey and shows how joy is always just around the corner.
