A brilliant picture book that takes a light-hearted look at life with a child in the house.

Hazel Spratt was an agreeable child. Never impatient, unruly or wild.

But when Hazel turns three-and-a-half, her parents notice a change. She is no longer their polite and pleasant daughter, Hazel, she is now Grumbelina, 'a grumpy child, so disgruntled yet small, with a list of complaints that could cover a wall.'

Settle down and relax for a moment, this humorous and delightfully illustrated picture book takes a tongue-in-cheek look at tantrums - perfect for every home.

  • A wonderfully written, and beautifully illustrated, story that I think most parents of toddlers will be able to relate to! It’s quickly become one of my daughter’s favourite bedtime stories.
