Super cute little book about a orange little tabby named Alfie who loves to be grumpy! When the wind changes and his face is stuck in a smile, Alfie realizes it's better to smile... even if a bird poops on your head! I especially loved the page that showed Alfie playing with 2 other tomcats: a tuxedo kitty (Libby) and a Grey tabby (Handsome). Great book for kids who love kitties and who may need a little reminder that it is better to smile! :-)
