When Charley Met Grampa

by Amy Hest
Helen Oxenbury

eBook

Features an audio read-along! The creators of Charley's First Night return with a tale of a boy, a puppy, and a grampa—an enchanting picture book bearing all the hallmarks of a classic. It's a snowy day, and Grampa is coming by train for a visit. Henry can't wait! He sets out with Charley, his beloved pup, pulling a sled for Grampa's suitcase. To pass time at the station, Henry tells Charley about Grampa—how he has the longest feet and snores wild, and how he doesn't know how to be friends with a dog. At last Grampa arrives, but when a sudden gust of wind blows his hat away, Charley disappears into the whirling snow—and returns, to their relief, carrying Grampa's green cap! With lyrical simplicity, Amy Hest narrates a small, turning moment in the life of a child and a grandparent, while Helen Oxenbury renders every gesture and detail with signature warmth and charm.
