Mr. Happy and Miss Grimm

Mr. Happy and Miss Grimm

by Antonie Schneider

An eternally joyful optimist worms his way into his embittered neighbor’s affections in this colorful and heartwarming story of blossoming friendship.

Mr. Happy has just moved in next door, and Miss Grimm is not pleased. Mr. Happy greets the sun each day, works tirelessly in his spectacular garden, and even whistles to the birds. So much for peace and quiet!

From her gloomy and barren side of the fence, Miss Grimm knows one thing for certain: she wants nothing to do with Mr. Happy. But Mr. Happy knows something too: given kindness and patience, anything can grow—even a friendship with lonely Miss Grimm.
