About the Author

Debbie Wagenbach, better known as "Miss Debbie" to the children who come to hear her storytimes at Burlington, Iowa Public Library, has been promoting library programs for twenty years. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than watching her youngest patrons blossom into thriving adolescents and well adjusted adults. She loves hanging out with her family on Friday nights. Debbie adores her 29 "niblings" (nieces and nephews) and three "great-niblings." She is warmed by their smiles and challenged by their "grouchies."

Steve Mack grew up a prairie boy on Canada's Great Plains and has drawn for as long as he can remember. His first lessons in art were taught to him by watching his grandfather do paint-by-numbers at the summer cottage. He has worked for greeting card companies and has illustrated several books. Steve lives peacefully on a lake in Saskatchewan with his wife and two small children. He still loves to illustrate but now thinks fishing holds a close second place.

I purchased this book for my almost 4 year old who has a bit of a "mood issue" lately. Its FANTASTIC! Cute, witty, speaks the perfect language for my son. he completely related and thought it was so funny! and im going to make him a "grouchies shield" like they have in the book and little "sun smiles" too... a must have if you have a child from about 2.5 and up! They are forever changing moods and this book was great for helping him become aware of it!! I even got a kick out of reading it
