It's 1869 when the idea strikes Dr. Welch. For years people have been using grapes to make wine, but Dr. Welch thinks he can make a sweeter drink, one that everyone can enjoy. He'll use his imagination and a little innovation, and ask his oldest son to help. They'll squeeze bunches of grapes, they'll heat the juice, and they'll hold their breath. Finally, it will be time to take the first sip. But will this be the sweetest, most purplelicious juice ever, or will it taste of sour grapes? In "The Great Grape Problem, Mary Lou Carney's humorous narration and Sherry Meidell's spirited watercolors combine to tell the remarkable story of grape juice's journey from idea to invention.
