About

When I was a little girl, and I was in a bad mood, my mother would tell me the story of the Grumpy, Grouchy Girl.  Every now and then when she told the story, my mother would add new characters based on people we knew; eventually it became the story that I could repeat by heart.
When I got older and my friends and family members my age started having children, I asked my mother if she would mind helping me put her story in book form so that we could share the story with the little ones coming into our lives.  Mom was delighted!  We asked Jena Cotreau,the daughter of Mom’s longtime friend, to help us illustrate the book.  And, now that Jena and I have a little girls of our own, I am even more excited about publishing our book.

Mom mentioned that my siblings and I liked to color in our Dr. Seuss books with our ever present crayons.  And, ah hah!  I realized that the wonderful illustrations in our book are just perfect for a coloring book, so we decided to print Grumpy, Grouchy Girl coloring books, too.

Now we would like to share the story with all the little children who have those grumpy, grouchy moments.  The book is complete, we have a copyright, and it's ready to be printed.  We have found an excellent printer, Signature Book Printing www.sbpbooks.com 

This Kickstarter will greatly help offset the printing and shipping costs – and, it gives supporters like you a chance to get the book and bonus items before they are available to the public.  We definitely need your contributions.  If you are unable to contribute money, please help by sharing this to your social media, and tell your friends and family about the Grumpy, Grouchy Girl book and the Kickstarter project to get it printed. Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

Because Kickstarter is "all or nothing" funding, there is no real risk to the backer. If we reach our goal, your credit/debit card will be charged on September 15. If we don't :-( reach our goal, your card will NOT be charged.

The book is written, we just need help with printing/shipping costs in pre-sales. The order is ready to be placed for the books to be printed and delivered to us. As soon as we are fully funded, we will execute the order.

While every project comes with risks and challenges, we will work diligently with the printer to do our best to deliver the books and bonuses to our backers in time for the winter holidays.

We all know that unforeseen delays can happen, (we hope they don’t!) so we will keep the information on Kickstarter updated so that you will be fully informed of our progress.
