Oh my goodness! This book is picture book perfection! I LOVE the message. I LOVE LOVE the illustrations! I immediately found the rest of the books by this author/illustrator in our library after reading this. This is one to own. ( )

Bernice is so angry because everyone is getting all of the good stuff at the party except her. She misses out on the candy, the drink she gets is warm, and she doesn't get the kind of cake she wants. She gets so angry that she steals all the balloons, which end up carrying her away. Looking from above, Bernice realizes that her problems are so small and unimportant. When she decides to be happy, she has a great time and everyone else does too.

Bernice is having a really bad day but she turns things around by making very kind choices. A great book for talking about sharing. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803739168, Hardcover)

Perfect for a new generation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day readers, this charming story about a grumpy cat gently shows how far a little sharing can go.
Bernice is having a truly rotten time at her friend's birthday party. First, everyone else gets a piece of cake with a frosting rose. But not Bernice. Then, everyone else gets strawberry-melon soda. Bernice gets the prune-grapefruit juice. And it's warm. The last straw is the one lousy (squished) candy she gets from the piñata. So when the balloons arrive, Bernice knows just what she has to do: grab them all. And then, poor cross Bernice gets carried up, up, and away. Luckily, she figures out just how to make her way back down to the party...and she brightens lots of other animals' days on her way.

Hannah Harrison’s gorgeous animal paintings come alive in her second picture book. Her “exceptionally polished” debut, Extraordinary Jane, received starred reviews from Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, and  School Library Journal.

Having missed out on the other treats at a friend's birthday party, a grumpy cat grabs all of the balloons and floats into the sky, where she sees that her problems are not so big, after all.
