Goodnight, Grizzle Grump! Is Aaron Blecha’s first authored/illustrated picture book. It was published in 2016, by Harper Collins Children’s Group,
Goodnight, Grizzle Grump! fits the definition of a fun picture book exactly. The illustrations are cute and silly. The many creatures that surround Grizzle Grump are all goofy looking with big, buggy eyes. Hilarious! Even Grizzle Grump himself looks more funny than grizzly.
Grizzle Grump (and his anonymous side-kick) show us how persistence pays off in Grizzle Grump’s search for the perfect place to take a long nap.
And that toothy side-kick reminds us subtly of the importance of being a true friend who sticks with his pal all the way to solving his problem.
A cute book. First, second, maybe even third graders will really enjoy it – especially as a read-aloud.
