Hurt and angry that his grandfather is selling the family farm, Todd has come to help him prepare for the auction that will take place the following day. Deep into the night, Gramps recounts the treasured stories of his life there, stories Todd knows by heart but asks to hear again and again. In this way, both are reassured that the story-making and -telling that characterized this vanishing life will continue to flourish despite the farm''s change of hands. Jan Andrews''s evocative prose and Karen Reczuch''s realistic watercolors make this tale of facing and overcoming loss an unforgettable one.
