Synopsis

Whimsical watercolor illustrations and a breezy text evoke the warmth and charm shared by a child and his grandfather on a weekend visit. They have similar likes (trading knock-knock jokes, playing baseball, reading) and dislikes (wearing new clothes, eating "funny-looking" food, and--most of all--cleaning up). It would seem that Shields's on-target voice captures the simple, direct language of a child. But wait a minute--on the very last page it is revealed that Grandpa has been the one telling this story!
