Synopses & Reviews
A warm Caribbean breeze wafts through this comforting picture book. When Grandma laughs, everybody laughs! Everyone, that is, except Ella. She's a very serious girl. Until the day when Grandma says to her, "You have to find some sunshine inside yourself--even when it's winter." And she gives her granddaughter the key to the summerhouse. Ella turns the key, opens the door, and discovers... a world of warmth and sunshine. A world that will be waiting for her always, not matter how gray the skies outside. And now when Grandma laughs--everybody laughs. Including Ella!
