Summary

Summary

No one in the town of Bonnyripple ever kept a grudge. No one, that is, except old Cornelius, the Grudge Keeper. Ruffled feathers, petty snits, minor tiffs and major huffs, insults, umbrage, squabbles, dust-ups, and imbroglios-the Grudge Keeper received them all, large and small, tucking each one carefully away in his ramshackle cottage. When a fierce wind blows through Bonnyripple, the residents are forced to rescue Cornelius and deal with their various disputes

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rockliff has created a clever fable characterized by ornate language, extraordinary characters, and billowy atmosphere.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review 
“The clever prose is, at times, more likely to sail over the heads of younger readers and head for older members of the audience…In an effort to introduce a contemporary note into the traditional setting, Wheeler makes the romance between Big Otto and Lily Belle an interracial one. On the whole, it’s a sweet, fluffy diversion.” Publishers Weekly 
“This book will resonate most with teachers and adults looking to share stories about the value of forgiveness.” School Library Journal
