This is a charming telling of the relationship between a grandfather and his grandson. Grandfather is quite the character and his love for his entire family is quite evident, even to the point of intrusion at times. A story of love spanning multiple generations.
I just love Max Apple's books because they are uplifting, humurous and absolutely heart warming. His love for his family shines through on every page! But what characters he has in his family, especially his grandfather. Read this book-it will make your day!
