Description

Sophie loves her Grandpa. And her Grandpa loves Sophie. They are best friends. And then one day there is no Grandpa. . . . Family love and the natural cycle of birth, life, and death are tenderly portrayed in this moving story. “Fox’s spare text distills complex life passages into emotions so clear even a child can understand and perhaps draw comfort from them.”--Booklist
