Teachers Notes

Grumble Boats

by Susannah McFarlane and Tamsin Ainslie

Emma is very grumpy. She doesn’t want to be babysat.
She wants to go to the pirate party with her older brother, Tom.


Fortunately, Grandma knows exactly how to send Emma’s bad mood away …

Grumble Boats is a gorgeous reminder of the power of nature and grandmas to make us feel better.
