To make your holiday shopping as smooth and frustration-free as possible, from December 5-December 27 only books currently in stock at one or both of our locations will be available for purchase online. We will still be able to take preorders for not-yet-released books. But online orders for other books not currently on our shelves will have to wait until after the holidays, in order to minimize disruptions. If a really popular book is out of stock, check back in a couple of days to see if more copies arrive. Send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Because there's a lovable grouch in everyone's life, and because sometimes we're the lovable grouch.
Stacey— From The Pursuit of Grouchiness
In The Pursuit of Grouchiness, Oscar the Grouch teaches you how to lose friends and grouchily influence people.
There’s no greater expert on celebrating a crummy day than Oscar the Grouch. After complaining about cheerfulness for decades from his trash can on Sesame Street, Oscar now shares his secrets for making sure you’re as curmudgeonly as possible, all day, every day.
It's the perfect gift for your grouchy friends, your annoyingly upbeat friends who could stand to be a little grouchier, and even just yourself—because a bad day can always get worse.
Now get lost! And have a rotten day!

Oscar the Grouch doesn't need to explain himself to you.
He lives in a trash can on Sesame Street.
