Reviews

"The best part of this collaboration between the longtime editor and the Caldecott Medalist is the playfulness that oozes from Jackson's well-chosen words and the warmth of Pinkney's artwork. There's one thing that's never missing from this gentle story about a special bond between the generations, and that's the love Grandpa and Sophie have for each other."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A fabulous family story with something for the young and old alike."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This appealing story about a dynamic intergenerational relationship is large enough to share with a group, but individual children will want to pore over the art to spot all of the details in plain sight."--School Library Journal, starred review

"This makes a good one-on-one read aloud for those not quite ready for Martin Handford's Where's Waldo? series."--Booklist
