Four-year old Willie loves visiting his Grandma, but his mothre has warned him-if he gets into trouble again, there'll be no more overnight visits for an entire year. Planning to be very, very good, Willie (in the way of all four year olds), actually gets into yet another situation he can't get rid of-but it's Grandma to the rescue. A wonderful story about a boy's relationship with his beloved grandmother, and about the love we feel for the special people in our lives.
