About this title


When a human comes to the forest and sells custom-made shoes to the monsters, bringing them previously unknown comfort, Grump no longer grumps and Pout no longer pouts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4 Grump berates all of the monsters in the forest, including her gloomy husband, Pout. When the village cobbler comes in search of new customers, he improves the monsters' lives with custom-made shoes. After he replaces Grump's worn, uncomfortable shoes with snazzy new ones, her grumpiness vanishes, and her marriage flourishes. The monsters hold a dance to celebrate. Boynton's pastel monsters and humorous pictures can't rescue the inane plot. The full-color illustrations vary in size, ranging from two-page spreads to comic strip format with four or six panels per page. However, the visual interest can't overcome writing that often seems aimed at adults rather than children. When the cobbler tries to convince the monsters to try his product, for example, he sounds like a bad television commercial. ``Shoes can also keep your feet from getting tired, and can even relieve the backache that comes from improperly supported feet.'' Boynton lovers, podiatrists, or cobblers might get a kick out of this, but everyone else will probably find it as flat as fallen arches. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, Minn.
