Bobby loved to be with his grandfather, Bob. They did so many things together. Then Bob suffered a stroke, and Bobby was frightened and confused until he realized that even though Bob couldn't move or talk, he knew what was happening around him.
And it was Bobby who began to help Bob with some of the things his grandfather had helped him to learn--how to eat by himself, to talk, and even to walk again.
In this companion volume to Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs, Tomie de Paola lovingly and perceptively explores the relationship between a child and his grandfather in a situation experienced by many families.
