Happy and silly six-year-old Jesse is over the moon when his family adopts kitten, Milo, from the shelter. But little does Jesse know that Milo was “born under a raincloud” and is perfectly happy to be grumpy! When Milo refuses to play with Jesse and retreats to hide under the couch instead, the family thinks that is that. Until, surprisingly, Milo starts to bond with family’s grumpiest member: Grandpa. Eventually, being in one another’s company reminds Milo and Grandpa about the power of trust and friendship, and they become more inclined to spend time with the rest of the family. Even if they still want to do it with a scowl! This beautifully crafted storytime book is a charming reminder about the joys and freedoms that come from taking small steps outside your comfort zone.
