Tom dePaola’s classic illustrations accompany his heartwarming story about his relationship with his grandfather as a small boy.
“A delightfully offbeat vignette of boyish mischief reinforcing the bond between generations.”—Kirkus Reviews
“DePaola champions the special relationship he had with grandfather. . . . Youngsters will bask in the delicious conspiracy between grandfather and grandson. . . . This book is a treasure.”—Booklist
“With gentle humor and his usual master of line and composition, dePaola conveys the strong bond of affection between Tom and little Tommy, from the photo-album snapshot of the proud grandfather holding a baby on the title page to the big hug of the mischief-makers that ends the book.”—Horn Book
“Touches of old-world humor add sparkle to the tale.”—Publishers Weekly
