An older boy takes us on a densely atmospheric reminiscence of his moments spent with Grandpa as they savored life at the beach, in the forests, in the city, and in the landscape of their family. Even after we discover that the grandfather has died, this companion volume to GRANDMA'S SCRAPBOOK is no less effective in evoking a powerful charge of wonder and hope since its narrator believes that his grandpa

is always with him.


Revised, this "modern classic" is back in print

and available in hardcover and paperback!
