It's nearly Christmas, but Grumpy Badger's in an intolerable mood. The forest is a flurry of activity, with everyone putting up the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, and making yummy treats. Didn't they know - that Christmas and the long cold winter are meant for sleeping straight through? "Piffle!" shouts Grumpy Badger. "I don't like presents and I don't like Christmas!" So he snuggles under his thick, down comforter and settles in for a snooze. But then there's a knock - followed by another, and another. When the merriment of Christmas comes right to his door, how long Grumpy Badger refuse? Chapman's masterfully-drawn illustrations extend the magic of Christmas to the animal world.
  • Deeroman
One of my favorite Christmas books! Tells a great story about what the Holidays should truly be about. Great for animal lovers but detailed enough for older children.
  • Ffrlel
Others have said this is based on "A Christmas Carol" but please understand it is only very loosely related. It's a cute story with fun illustrations, but meanders a little bit and doesn't leave much of an impression. But if your kid is fascinated with badgers (mine is) that's all it will take to make it a hit.

I wanted American version. Got British version

We have enjoyed giggling together with the familiar characters of this series. Although 'The Bear Snores On' is still our favorite, this one did not disappoint.

Badger is not amused with all the hustle and bustle surrounding Christmas. He makes it very clear to his fellow animal friends that he just wants to be left alone and hibernate in peace...uninterrupted...everyone stay away...period. He goes into his house and slams the door shut, checks out his winter stash of food, then satisfied, settles down for his long winter's nap. But things don't go exactly as he plans. With many disruptions and annoyances he discovers that maybe his sleep may have to be postponed for this winter. He tries to ignore all the distractions at first that cause him to get grumpier and grumpier. Then an urgent request reaches him that makes him unable to settle back down and journey back into slumberland. He opens his eyes wide, jumps out of bed and runs to help a friend who is in desperate need of him. He discovers a true Christmas principle...it is getter to give than to receive. He is so happy when he is recognized as a hero. He invites all of his friends inside his home, opens wide his cupboard doors, and spreads a festive feast fit for a king for everyone to enjoy. I think he even amazes himself when he realizes how fun celebrating Christmas can be and he wants to make it a tradition for years to come.

All Badger wants to do is go to sleep; he doesn't care about Christmas. It's his time to go underground and sleep all winter through. When his animal friends come knocking on his door trying to bring presents and asking to borrow his ladder to decorate a Christmas tree, he angrily sends them away. "Piffle!" he shouts. "I don't like presents and I don't like Christmas!"

But then one of them shows up to ask for his help because Mole is stuck on top of the tree he was trying to decorate. Again, Grumpy Badger wants to be left alone, so he closes the door and goes back to sleep... but he has a terrible dream that Mole is about to fall out of the tree. When he startles himself awake, he realizes what a bad friend he's been, rushes out to save Mole, and apologizes to everyone for being so grumpy.

To make it up to them, he throws a wonderful Christmas party, which he intends to make an annual tradition.

The story's only possible flaw is that badgers don't actually hibernate. They're less active in cold weather, and sometimes stay underground for long stretches, but they don't sleep through the winter as it suggests in this book. If you forgive this bit of artistic license... and the fact that the text can be a little hard to read against the background on some pages... it's a winner all the way. A solid message, an entertaining story, and nicely expressive acrylic paintings.

Paul Bright, Grumpy Badger's Christmas (Good Books, 2009)

Everyone in the woodland valley is looking forward to Christmas except grumpy badger. Which makes sense if you're an adult given that badgers hibernate during the winter. Problem is, people keep knocking on his door and disturbing his rest. He keeps getting grumpier and grumpier until he finally falls asleep and realizes that he's done something horribly wrong, after which everyone kisses and makes up. I am—to put it mildly—not a fan of Christmas, but this one does hold up to the kinds or readings and re-readings it got in December, and for the Bean's general attention level, this is a pretty long book, and he eats it up. And hey, I love badgers, and everyone loves a good party (oops, spoiler alert). *** ½
Grumpy Badger is a modern (and animal-inspired) take on the classic tale of the miserly Scrooge. While all the other woodland creatures are busy preparing for Christmas, Badger holes himself up in his home, preparing to hibernate for the winter. He refuses to be cajoled into taking part in the festivities, and his only source of enjoyment is to gaze at his vast store of rations for the long hibernation ahead.

When little Mole asks for Badger's help to decorate the Christmas tree, Badger rudely chases Mole away. It is only later, when Mole gets into trouble, that Badger's conscience pricks him into action, and setting things right. The ending is wonderfully upbeat, with a festive-inspired feast and party not to be forgotten anytime soon by the woodland creatures. Young children will delight in this beautifully-illustrated holiday tale.
