Comfortable and happy together, William and Grandpa enjoy their visit, sharing the pleasures of star gazing on a balmy night and drinking hot chocolate before bed. The intergenerational theme and appealing characters--fit, jocular Grandpa and adoring grandson--give the slice-of-life story resonance. Dabcovich's bright pictures reinforce and extend the text, with a lush warm-weather setting contrasted with Grandpa's cozy, old-fashioned house. William's visit is one worth repeating. Ages 4-6.
