About this title


Janetta's Grandaddy lives on a farm with chickens and a mule, and when he comes to visit her in Baltimore, Janetta is worried that he'll find the city boring.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2^-4, younger for reading aloud. Here's a sequel of sorts to the delightful Grandaddy and Janetta (1993), and what a treat it is. Grandaddy is coming to Baltimore for a visit, and Janetta is terribly worried something will go wrong. First, she's afraid he'll miss his train; later, she's certain that what she's planned for the two of them to do ("important things" like meeting her cat, visiting her school, seeing her feather collection) is too boring, especially when compared to Grandaddy's busy life in Georgia with his chickens and his mule. But to Janetta's surprise and delight, Grandaddy seems pleased with everything he sees--especially her. The dialogue is tender, comical, and down to earth, and the love between grandfather and child flows plainly across the pages: it's present in Grandaddy's funny stories about his animal friends, in his wise words that help Janetta feel special and take pride in her life, and in his comforting philosophy about the stars, which Janetta takes to heart to ease his parting. It's also present in Stevenson's unpretentious pictures, which convey in watercolor washes and a few ink lines the strength and devotion of intergenerational affection. Stephanie Zvirin
