The imaginary friend of a very grumpy little girl is determined to cheer her up in this lovely story that celebrates imagination, friendship, and sharing.
Lily loves to draw, but today something feels different.

Things feel a little frumpy and bumpy, just not so and not quite right. Her pencils are too pointy. Her paints are too sloshy. And her crayons are too stubby. Even her friend Bear can't help, until they realize that Lily has Grumpy Feet! It takes a special friend like Bear to turn Lily's day around!

    In this follow-up to Lily and Bear, nothing seems right to Stubbs’s heroine, Lily: “The day was too rainy, the teapot was too dribbly, and the sunshine color was missing.” After Lily again draws her friend Bear into existence, he diagnoses her with “grumpy feet” and sets out to improve her mood. With its crayony scrawls, bright colors, and childlike renderings, Stubbs’s artwork immerses readers in Lily’s world, which expands fantastically as Lily and Bear venture into outer space to visit the moon, polish the stars, and locate a baby unicorn. The language can get a bit gushy at times, but Stubbs offers concrete ideas (make a list of things to do, put “happy shoes” on those grumpy feet) that could help some children turn around their own “grouchy and mouchy” days. Ages 4–8. Agent: Jodie Hodges, United Agents.

    A bear steps out of a drawing to chase away a bad mood.Today is not quite right. On a day so "grouchy and mouchy, out of sorts and discombobbled"--a day when the teapot's spout droops downwards--even drawing doesn't help: Lily's pencils are "too pointy, her paint too sloshy." Still, she brings herself to draw Bear, who steps from the huge piece of paper into Lily's room, alive. With toy medical equipment and goodwill, Bear diagnoses Lily with "grumpy feet." Googly-eyed slippers--bigger than Lily's head--don't help; a serving of sticky cake doesn't help. But if Bear can set them on a journey "past the rainy day" toward someplace "that glows all comfy, not frumpy and bumpy," Lily's feet may cheer up--they may even tap, wiggle, giggle, and jump. That place is the starry night sky, where they fulfill Lily's list of goals, including "polish[ing] stars" and "jump[ing] really very high." Stubbs' screen-printed illustrations offset vibrant crayon-y textures with the occasional childlike style of Lily's drawings. Lively scribbles run page to page, connoting weather and mood. The morose teapot sits on the floor in one scene, dripping down onto a different scene, in which its droplets become rain from a scribbly cloud. Lily has pale pink skin, a red-tipped nose, and a lower lip that sticks right out. Stubbs tackles an evergreen topic and does it very well. (Picture book. 3-6)
