Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2–All of the forest animals are enthusiastically preparing for Christmas–except for Grumpy Badger, who is, of course, too sensible to enjoy such nonsense. After all, everyone knows that winter is a time for sleeping, which is exactly what he plans to do if everyone will stop knocking on his door and bothering him. Children will delight in Grumpy Badger’s eventual discovery of the joys of the season. There are plenty of fun sound effects and Scrooge-influenced outbursts (“Bah! Piffle!”). Chapman’s cheery acrylic paintings are perfectly suited to the text, providing adorably expressive creatures in a wintry yet cozy timberland.–Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
The animals of the forest are preparing for Christmas, but Grumpy Badger just wants to settle down for his long winter's nap. He is awakened by cheery visits from several friends and then by a frantic call for help for Mole, who is stuck at the top of the community Christmas tree. All the visitors are rebuffed with grumpy behavior, but after a nightmare about poor Mole's fate, Grumpy Badger repents, rescues his friend and invites everyone home to feast on his winter provisions. The story is quite British in tone and dialogue, and the characters (all males) have a certain appeal due to their dignified manners-or curmudgeonly attitude, in the case of Grumpy Badger. The oversized format helps provide a good look at Chapman's cast of endearing animal characters. (Picture book. 3-6)

    Badger is not amused with all the hustle and bustle surrounding

    Badger is not amused with all the hustle and bustle surrounding Christmas.  He makes it very clear to his fellow animal friends that he just wants to be left alone and hibernate in peace...uninterrupted...everyone stay away...period.  He goes into his house and slams the door shut, checks out his winter stash of food, then satisfied, settles down for his long winter's nap.  But things don't go exactly as he plans. With many disruptions and annoyances he discovers that maybe his sleep may have to be postponed for this winter. He tries to ignore all the distractions at first that cause him to get grumpier and grumpier. Then an urgent request reaches him that makes him unable to settle back down and journey back into slumberland.  He opens his eyes wide, jumps out of bed and runs to help a friend who is in desperate need of him.  He discovers a true Christmas principle...it is getter to give than to receive.  He is so happy when he is recognized as a hero. He invites all of his friends inside his home, opens wide his cupboard doors, and spreads a festive feast fit for a king for everyone to enjoy.  I think he even amazes himself when he realizes how fun celebrating Christmas can be and he wants to make it a tradition for years to come.
