Product Details


Usher’s jaunty visual style is a mash-up of two British greats, Quentin Blake and John Burningham.
—The New York Times Book Review

A delightfully warm read about a grandfather and grandchild…How much of this adventure is imagined and how much is real within the world of the book doesn’t matter at all in terms of the characters’ enjoyment of each other’s company, nor will it affect readers’ pleasure…A grand sun story, indeed.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The simple, repetitive text is clearly printed on white space on each page, making this a possible choice for beginning readers, but the large trim size and bright illustrations make it an ideal choice for preschool storytime.
—School Library Journal

While the text is understated, the watercolor-and-ink illustrations switch dramatically from moderately detailed close-ups to panoramic scenes that culminate in the elaborately detailed party scene. No matter what the weather, an excursion with this winsome twosome is always a treat.
—Booklist Online

Summertime often means a visit to grandparents, and this lovingly imagined adventure will tickle any kid who has one (or more).
—USA Today
