From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3 Grandpa is back with another entertaining and comforting story. When Mary Ann and Louie move to a new neighborhood, they hate it because they have no friends. As usual, when Grandpa hears of their dilemma, it reminds him of a similiar situation that happened to him and his brother Wainey. In this exaggerated tale, the use of humor helps to erase the fear of meeting new people and emphasizes that children and grandpas alike have faced similiar problems. Stevenson's zany cartoon-like pen and watercolor illustrations and the dialogue balloons befit the story's mood and are appealing to children. The format, however, lends itself to individual reading rather than group sharing. This book can be used with The Berenstain Bears' Moving Day (Random, 1981) and Delton's Lee Henry's Best Friend (Whitman, 1980). A delightful tale sure to drive away moving day qualms. Orvella Fields, Indianapolis Marion County Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

In Stevenson's latest "Grandpa" story, Mary Ann and Louie complain that their new neighborhood is the worst place in the world. After all, they haven't made any friends. Then Grandpa tells them about the new neighborhood he and his brother Wainey once lived in. It was ugly, cold and windy; there was no one to play with. The only kids around were the neighborhood bullies. One day, baby Wainey accidentally lands on a runaway bicycle and pulls such a remarkable stunt that everyone comes over to introduce themselves and to play. Grandpa's neighborhood wasn't so bad after alland as Mary Ann and Louie discover, neither is theirs. The zany pace of the comic-strip style illustrations help make this a razzle-dazzle comedy of friendship gained.
