Everyone's favorite New York Times bestselling Grumpy Monkey is back in this hilarious sequel about managing social anxiety and listening to your needs! Have you ever been a little anxious about going to a party? Jim Panzee feels that. Porcupine is having a big party, and according to Jim's best friend Norman, there will be--gulp--dancing. Jim can DEFINITELY not dance. When he tells his friends, they all try to teach him cool moves--surely that's the only reason Jim isn't excited about this party! Now, their job complete, the other animals sweep Jim along, all the way to the dance floor. Jim is dipped, swayed, and twirled until he can't take it anymore--he just doesn't like to dance! When he lets everyone know, he's met with disbelief...until Water Buffalo reveals that he doesn't much care to dance, either. As more and more animals have the courage speak their truths, does this mean there's no place for them at this party? In this hilarious sequel to GRUMPY MONKEY, kids will learn that it's okay not to go with the flow if they're uncomfortable, and that speaking up about what they need can help others speak up, too--and maybe they need the same thing!

Il y a des jours ou` Gaston le chimpanze' n'a envie de dire qu'une chose : «NON !»
Cette fois c'est décidé ! Gaston le chimpanzé ne veut plus être grognon. Pour chasser sa mauvaise humeur il râle il hurle il tape des pieds. Mais il reste super méga grognon ! Avec l'aide de ses amis arrivera-t-il à se débarrasser de sa mauvaise humeur ?
Gaston le chimpanzé s'est levé de très mauvaise humeur, sans raison particulière. Le soleil est trop radieux, les bananes trop douces, le ciel trop bleu.Et tout le monde semble d'accord sur un point : c'est tellement dommage de faire la tête par une si belle journée ! Marabout, Lémurien, Serpent, chacun y va de son petit conseil pour encourager leur ami à se détendre, à sourire et à s'amuser... ce qui a le don d'énerver encore plus Gaston. Et si la solution, c'était de le laisser être grognon ?
Comme tous les mercredis, Gaston se lève tôt pour une petite balade tant que la jungle est encore calme. Mais ce matin, son meilleur ami, Bernard le gorille, décide de venir avec lui. Et bientôt, tous les autres animaux l'accompagnent aussi ! Heureusement, Gaston a une orange antistress et une formule magique : On presse, on presse, et on déstresse. Mais ce matin, il la malaxe si fort que... SPROUTCH. Horreur ! L'orange est en bouillie !
Aujourd'hui Gaston le chimpanzé est très excité : c'est la grande Course ! Pendant que tous les animaux se bousculent sur la ligne de départ, lui aussi se prépare... non pas à courir, mais à dormir. Alors que Gaston est en plein rêve délicieux, une petite voix vient le réveiller : -Tu peux faire la course avec moi ? supplie Tortue.Une histoire de Gaston Grognon qui montre que dans la Grande Course de la vie, l'amitié l'emporte toujours sur la mauvaise humeur !
T'es grognon, Gaston ? Tu veux une banane ? Tu préfères une banane ET une balle ?Hum, t'es encore grognon.Quand un enfant (ou même un adulte !) est en pleine crise de grognonitude comme Gaston, il faut des trésors d'imagination pour arriver à lui redonner le sourire.Une banane et une balle ne suffisent pas ? Alors essayons une banane, une balle,des crayons pastels, un paquet surprise, un flamant rose, une grenouille à perruque bouclée, ou même la lune !
Pour une fois, Gaston le chimpanzé est d'excellente humeur. Il se rend à une soirée pyjama !Au programme : des jeux, de jus de pastèque et surtout...PAS QUESTION DE DORMIR.Mais si Gaston reste éveillé toute la nuit, il risque de devenir sacrément grognon !
Aujourd'hui, Gaston le chimpanzé est invité à une fête. Mais, contrairement à ses amis, il n'est ni content ni pressé d'y aller. Et il a une bonne raison... GASTON N'AIME PAS DANSER !
Tous les animaux de la jungle sont surexcités, c'est bientôt Noël! Mais Gaston le chimpanzé déteste cette période de l'année:il fait froid, il pleut, et les bananes ne sont pas mûres. En plus, Marabout lui casse les oreilles avec ses chansons.Peu importe ce que disent ses amis, NOËL, C'EST NUL!
