Gruff the Grump
Gruff is one great, big, scowly, growly grizzly grump of a bear. In fact, he's so grumpy that all the forest animals call him Gruff the Grump. But Gruff doesn't care. Plus, his grumpy reputation is perfect for keeping the other forest animals out of his way. Except, that is, for one disarmingly-earnest little rabbit, whose winning ways find in Gruff a big, kind friend. Biscoe's warm illustrations bring Gruff, the little rabbit, and the rest of the forest menagerie to life with vivid facial expressions that will endear these colourful characters to young readers. And embedded in every spread are recurring creepy, crawly critters to heighten anticipation with every turn of the page.
