An exuberant celebration of a wonderful grandpa – and all grandpas everywhere!
The grandpa in this book is truly brilliant. He builds fantastic sandcastles, he makes wonderful flower arrangements, and he's very, very, very patient. He's got an amazing bike, he's a terrific dancer and he knows all about first aid ... in fact there's very little this astounding grandpa can't do. The book ends, "It's great to have a grandpa like mine. He's amazing!" And no one can argue with that!

While the text is lovely, it is the illustrations, as is the case with any good picture book that flesh out and enhance the story so well.
