Jim Panzee, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling Grumpy Monkey series is very grumpy when his best friend Norman is too busy with his ever-expanding bug collection to play.

When Norman shows Jim his pet butterfly, Butterfly-Butterfly, Jim is suitably impressed, especially when Norman spouts butterfly facts.  Then Norman adds Beetle-Beetle 1 and Beetle-Beetle 2 and so many more to his menagerie. Now Norman spends all his time feeding and caring for his pets and doesn’t have time to play.  Grumpy Monkey Jim feels left out.  And when all the bugs have babies, Jim declares that Norman has too many and persuades his friend to set them free. But then Norman sees a ladybug…

Simple bug facts, easy-to-read words, and dynamic and humor-filled illustrations will lead young readers to a lifelong love of books.

Step 2 readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell engaging stories. They are perfect for children 4-6 who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.

Series Overview: Since 1984, Step into Reading has set the standard. Random House was the first trade publisher to implement a leveling system that recognized the developmental stages of beginning readers; offer a reader series as original paperbacks; and publish a mix of original and licensed titles. The line includes exciting fiction and non-fiction (now broken into categories), favorite characters, and innovative line extensions such as Comic Readers, Math Readers, Phonics Readers, and Leyendos a Pasos Spanish translations: a complete literacy program with something for every child.

GRUMPY MONKEY SERIES DESCRIPTION: The Grumpy Monkey books were created by Suzanne and Max Lang to promote emotional literacy. Filled with fun stories and silly illustrations, these books encourage readers to feel all their feelings. There’s something for every age--Look for board books, picture books, easy readers, and early graphic novel chapter books!
