Pom Pom gets the grumps

One morning Pom Pom got out of bed on the wrong side and nothing was right.

Then things went from bad to worse…
“Harrumph!” said Pom Pom.

Pom Pom gets the grumps

We are all guilty of getting out of the bed on the wrong side, walking up in the grumps. This charming story shows children that whilst we might be feeling grumpy there is no excuse to be rude to our friends.

Filled with beautiful illustrations and some wonderful facial expressions on Pom Pom the Panda, that really do bring the story to life.
