About this title


A young boy who lives with his grandmother is terribly embarrassed by her behavior at first, but comes to realize that she is not just having fun, she has a reason for each strange action.

About the Author:

Mikhail Baryshnikov has danced all over the world and has received many honors, such as the National Medal of Arts, the Kennedy Center Honors, and numerous honorary degrees. He was artistic director of American Ballet Theatre from 1980 to 1989, and cofounded the White Oak Dance Project with Mark Morris in 1990. In 2005 the Baryshnikov Arts Center opened its doors at 37 Arts in New York City. BAC is dedicated to the development of new talent in all disciplines: directing, writing, choreography, design visual art, and performance.

Vladimir Radunsky has illustrated many wonderful books, including The Maestro Plays by Bill Martin Jr and Woody Guthrie's Howdi Do. He is also the author-illustrator of 10 (ten) and (with Chris Raschka) of Table Manners.

The children whose quotes appear in this book all attend The Ambrit International School in Rome. This is their first book.
