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 Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “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
