Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer

Seven-year old Zachary Briddling is normal in every way: normal height, normal hair, and normal dreams. And this make him so grumpy. Trying to find a way to standout, The Grumpiest Boy in the World follows Zachary as he sets out to a land of giants, flying things, and hairy creatures to discover that anyone is special no matter how plain or ordinary they think they are.
