About this title


Grumpy Ludlow only laughs at night while dreaming and his contagious laughter entertains the whole world until one night, the laughter stops.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 While this book is supposed to be funny, most children will find it lacking in humor and interest. The story centers on Ludlow, born with a frown on his face, who works in a complaint department and comes home grumpy and grouchy every night. Without explanation, one night in his sleep, Ludlow begins to laugh. The townspeople who hear him begin to laugh with him. A radio station begins to broadcast his laughs, and the whole world laughs with him. Then just as suddenly as his laughing started, it stops. In the end Ludlow is shown sleeping soundly in his bed. A final picture (with no text) shows a now-smiling Ludlow. But few will really care whether Ludlow is smiling or frowning. The plot is strained and contrived. The pages are filled with boldly drawn full-color illustrations that are reminiscent of Leger's modeled figures. These pictures include dialogue balloons filled with "ha-ha-ha," "har-har"s and "haw-haw"sthe only clue that the story might be humorous. Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, Iowa
