This is an excellant story, beautifully written by Australian children's author Mem Fox. Great lessons to be learned by our friend Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge about how to treat the elderly with respect and joy! There are some things that may need to be explained to American children...like what Cricket is (the sport). I smile and tear up everytime I read it. The illustrations are gorgeous as well.
