The Grumpus by Alex T. Smith

We have the perfect Christmas book for you! The Grumpus and his Dastardly, Dreadful Christmas Plan! 

Master of all things Christmassy, this is Alex’s latest festive title published by Macmillan Children’s Books.  It’s an hilarious, share-together story smattered with eye-catching page details, luxurious full-page illustrations, enchanting chapter openers and lavish title page embellishments perfectly peppering this wonderful alternative seasonal tale. 

"The Grumpus is essentially my riff on A Christmas Carol - a mean and unhappy character is changed over the course of three acts to understand the spirit of Christmas. But I hope readers will take more from The Grumpus than just that." - Alex T. Smith.

The Grumpus is a beautiful hardback with a festively foiled cover, it is the perfect Christmas gift, destined to become a modern Christmas classic that adults and children alike return to year after year
