Do you know Grumpy Cat? This cat is very popular because it is always grumpy. Around 16 million people see her first video. She has 6.2 million likes on Facebook.

The cat has a new book. New York celebrates the book. One thousand people come to the bookshop. They want to see the cat. They want to take pictures with it.

People put black colour on the cat’s paw. Then they put the paw on a person’s book. This way, the cat signs the book!

Difficult words: grumpy (not happy, sad or not having fun), paw (animal’s foot), sign (it has a symbol of the cat in it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
