Are you in love with the Internet sensation, Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat? Then I’ve got great news for you. She has written a book on how to be grumpy, called A Grumpy Book. It’s filled to the brim with ways to be grumpy, how to ruin anyone’s day, and, of course, lots of pictures of the queen of grump herself.
Grumpy Cat takes you on a horrible journey of misery, explaining, among other things, how to get into a grumpy mood. “Having some trouble sustaining your grumpiness?” she asks politely. She gives you some great “facts and statistics to get in the right space,” including my favorite: “Flowers are cesspools of bee urine and hummingbird spit.”
But it’s not all just advice and adorable pictures. It’s also something of an activity book. You can play connect the dots, try to find “grumpy” in a word search, and draw a picture of something “for [her] to judge.” And let’s not forget the amazing crossword puzzle, with hints like “______ way, Jose” and “James Bond villain Dr. _____.”
This book has everything, from a meditation on how to envision grumpiness, to an actual recipe for litter box cake (spoiler alert: it’s amazing). There’s even a picture of Grumpy Cat you can color yourself (“acceptable colors: gray, dark gray, black”) as well as translations on how to say “no” in half a dozen languages.
A Grumpy Book is one that all fans of Tardar Sauce are sure to love. It’s a short book, but one you can keep on your coffee table to impress your friends with all of your knowledge of memes. And really, who can resist that face?
