Check Out Grumpy Cat's Book. See If It's Awful.


Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book coverGrumpy Cat's new book is now available to borrow from San Jose Public Library. Pretty much everyone knows about Grumpy Cat unless they live under a rock (she wishes we all would), but you might not have known you could find a book by her at the library! If you can't find the book on your branch's shelf right away, you can put a hold on a one to be delivered to you at your local branch. Just click on the "request it" link under the record listing in the catalog and follow the instructions.

 

Some facts about the feline Internet celebrity:
 

  • Yes, she is female. For some reason it often surprises people to learn this.
  • Her real name is Tardar Sauce. The story goes that her human "mom," Tabatha Bundeson, worked at a seafood restaurant and Tabatha's daughter thought the speckles in their kitten's fur looked like tartar sauce. When it was written down as her name, it was misspelled and they kept it that way.
  • Grumpy Cat has a brother named Pokey. He is even grumpier than she is (she just looks grumpy, really).
