I would recommend this book because of its intricate and unique theme, and way of putting things. This was a gift to our family and it is a fantastic read. I read it with my eight year old brother, I am ten, and I love reading. The book is about a school boy named Ben whose grandfather comes to stay with his family. Ben and his grandfather get up to many funny misunderstandings which they both share with their friends. The illustrations go well with the words, explaining the story with them.
