About Katrina Moore

Katrina Moore writes and teaches in a part of New Jersey just outside Philadelphia. She has also taught in Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York after earning an MA in elementary education. Her mission is to create books that children will hug for ages, like One HugGrandpa Grumps, and the Teeny Houdini series. When not teaching elementary school kids or writing, she’s cooking without a recipe, painting outside the lines, or snuggling up with her two kids, husband, Pomapoo pup, and of course, a cozy book.

About Grumpy New Year

This funny and heartwarming follow-up to Grandpa Grumps celebrates Lunar New Year and the love of a doting grandparent.

“You should sleep on the long flight,” said Mama.
Daisy should have slept —
but she didn’t.
She was too excited to see Yeh-Yeh!

Daisy is traveling to China, and she’s excited to see her Yeh-Yeh again! She has big plans for all the fun they’ll have together in preparation for Lunar New Year, like flying kites and making jiao zi. But when she arrives, she has trouble sleeping and is less jolly than she hoped. Throughout the week, Yeh-Yeh tries all sorts of things to help her have a fun holiday and get her past her grumpiness. Will Daisy be able to get some rest and have one perfect day before she goes home?

“Moore structures her story as a 10-day countdown, and Daisy’s big, conflicting feelings are entirely relatable. The holiday preparations and celebrations come to life in Yan’s illustrations, which integrate humor and cultural details. Appended recipes truly make this a treat.” — Booklist
