One morning, Sherman's grumpiness takes the form of a literal rain cloud, soaking him and making his mood—and the weather—worse. Then, Sherman has an unexpected encounter with a group of imaginative children, who tell him, "It's the best day ever to be a pirate!" Will these happy-go-lucky kids be able to help the grumpy fellow turn his attitude around? David "Habbenink" Habben's sprightly tale for readers 4 to 8 is enlivened by his stylish ink cartoons, and his Mr. Sherman reminds us just a bit of a gruff Walter Matthau.
