I'd heard a lot of hate online about Grubber from My Little Pony the movie and how he was an unnecessary character for the film. I didn't mind him too much, though I feel his role in the chapter book A stormy road to Canterlot was way better than anything he did in the movie. We see Tempest meet him in the desert where he at the time is second in command unleashed the Storm Creatures on her to get the Misfortune Malachite she just found. A while after escaping Tempest and Grubber meet again in the Forgotten Hills and Tempest confided to Grubber what had happened to her horn before Grubber introduced her to the Storm King, who later sent Tempest and Grubber on a mission to steal Queen Novo's Pearl of transformation in exchange fixing her horn. I thought Grubber played a good part in that scene I don't wanna get to into writing about the whole thing, and later after that mission fails Grubber helps Tempest with a new mission for the Storm King that will get her horn fixed.
I thought Grubber played a great role in this prequel book and wish he had some more moments like those that unfortunately didn't happen in the movie.
