The Grumpface by B.C.R. Fegan Review

A new children’s book looks to become an instant classic in The Grumpface by B.C.R. Fegan. Harking back to the days when fairy tales and folklore were intertwined, this story of a mythical creature and the young man who must try to outsmart it in order to escape is something children will love instantly. Here is the synopsis:

The Grumpface is a poetic fairy-tale that tells the story of Dan, an inventor who ventures into a forest looking for a rose. Instead he finds the mysterious Grumpface who threatens to hold him captive unless he passes some difficult challenges. What follows is a humorous adventure that neither Dan nor the Grumpface could have anticipated.

The Grumpface is a tale in the spirit of any grand adventure. It is about a clumsy young inventor’s quest for love and the challenges he must face to find it. It is also a tale of bravery, absurdity and happiness, and the power of these qualities over negativity and sheer grumpiness.

Every parent will be acquainted with their own little ‘grumpface’ now and then. This story stands as a small piece of hope – that no matter how ingrained the grump, there will always remain in every one of us a smile or a laugh just waiting to come out.

A wonderful blend of poetry and childlike wonder, this amazing story was incredibly well written and the artwork was superb. A wonderful hark back to the days of classic children’s stories, the story helped blend elements of romance, adventure, self-worth and the fight to never give up on your dreams. The poetry inspired writing was well done, and the artwork made great work of vivid color schemes and warmth that many children will flock to read.

Overall this was a fantastic children’s book that any parent would love to read to their child. A great story with wonderful artwork, B.C.R. Fegan has a wonderful grasp on not only what children will be entertained by and enjoy, but on the kind of stories parents will want their children to read and grow up with. I highly recommend this book to anyone who reads children’s books, and I look forward to seeing more from this incredible author.

Rating: 10/10
