Where's Grandpa? Why, he is in his shed, of course. As we, along with the little boy in this picture book, venture into that shed, we'll be entering a very special place. And, as the child tells us, this special place is 'like a magic cave! The shed smells good, of grease and wood, and things that I don't know.'

Now, what's on the agenda for today? Perhaps the two will build a race car or a boat fashioned from a discarded bathtub. Maybe they'll create a spaceship or stay Earthbound and engage a scary dragon in battle. Then again, a leisurely flight in a big balloon might be nice.

The possibilities are endless once one enters Grandpa's shed if one has the imagination to conjure fabulous adventures. As the little boy declares, 'We can do just anything, my grandpa and me!'

You'll enjoy tagging along with this wonderful pair of adventurers as they come up with some splendid ways of spending this very special time together. The bond between a grandparent and grandchild can be quite extraordinary and this picture book celebrates that closeness in a gentle and touching manner.
