A girl describes her special times with her great-grandfather, who may be slow and weak but still travels to places in his mind where no one else can go

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Whimsical British touches in Mansell's scratchy, double-page color illustrations support and broaden this warm intergenerational story. In irregular rhythm, a little girl tells (in rhyme) about her great-grandpa , who "knows things that no one else knows." The youngster takes him for outings in a wheelchair--blue umbrella attached--sometimes when her granny doesn't know. Their favorite destination is his old house, now dilapidated with an overgrown, rubbish-strewn garden. Through this charming story, even children who don't know grandparents and great-grandparents will gain an insight into familial love. The pleasure the old man and the child take in one another is evident throughout. The obvious rhyme can be distracting; however, children involved with the story and the expansive, detailed pictures won't mind. --Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NB
