As he does in many of his picture books, Tomie dePaola gives a privileged peek into yet another happy episode in his formative years. Anyone who has ever had a special relationship with a grandparent will read this book with a warm heart and a hearty chuckle.
--"In his newest autobiographical picture book, dePaola champions the special relationship he had with his grandfather.... Youngsters will bask in the delicious conspiracy between grandfather and grandson.... This book is a treasure". -- Booklist, starred review"With gentle humor and his usual mastery of line and composition, dePaola conveys the strong bond of affection between Tom and little Tommy, from the photo-album snapshot of the proud grandfather holding a baby on the title page to the big hug of the two mischief-makers that ends the book". -- Horn Book, starred review
