A young grape is lucky enough to spend the whole day with his grandpa raisin. Grape thinks Grandpa’s wrinkles are awesome. Grandpa says you couldn’t pay him to be a grape again. Both of them agree, however, that together they make a great team.

In quite possibly the first intergenerational picture book featuring edible characters, authors Tom Amico and James Proimos’s funny and spare text shows us a genuinely sweet relationship between a grandson and his grandfather, while Andy Snair’s intentionally simple color palette will remind readers that sometimes the best things in life are the most basic.
