Product Details


“Wheeler’s (Miss Maple’s Seeds) sure hand and lyrical pen-and-ink spreads are the source of this story’s charm. Long skirts billow, the fairy-tale cottage of Cornelius the Grudge Keeper leans sweetly to one side, and the white scraps of paper on which villagers have written their grudges billow and drift like sea foam.”—Publishers Weekly

“This is an especially attractive picture book. . . Wheeler’s eye-catching cartoon drawings are busy with activity and whimsical detail that adds fullness to this simple, pleasant tale, and Rockliff’s telling is sprightly. This book will resonate most with teachers and adults looking to share stories about the value of forgiveness.”—School Library Journal

“Rockliff’s wordplay is a joy, while Wheeler’s Dickensian group of scowlers is pleasant to watch–even when they get happy.”—Booklist

★ “Rockliff has created a clever fable characterized by ornate language, extraordinary characters and billowy atmosphere. . . . Wheeler’s strong, witty ink-and-watercolor illustrations combine with the text to humorously demonstrate that “holding a grudge” is a bad thing.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
