A grouchy old man moves in to a new neighbourhood. After he snaps at the kids there a few times, they are terrified of him. He doesn't talk to anyone and no one knows his name. Uh-oh! Here he comes.

Will the kids be able to figure it out and help him be friendly again? Read on to find out.

The illustrations in this book are done by a talented 8 year old girl named Mishti Shah.
