20-08-2014 15:00

Grumpy Cat is an internet sensation. Her first video has around 16 millions views, and she has 6.2 million likes on Facebook.

The cat has a new book. People celebrate the launch of the book in a shop in New York. Around a thousand people come to see the cat, take pictures with it, and get a paw-stamp autograph.

The cat was, of course, grumpy during the whole celebration.

Difficult words: grumpy (bad-tempered), sensation (something which becomes very popular quickly), paw (animal’s foot).

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