""An excellent story that ties in birthdays, grandparents, multiculturalism, and how reading can take you away into other worlds.""

American Bookseller ""Pick of the Lists""

""This short story revolves around David and Sally's trip to the mountains where they visit their grandparents. In a throw-back to old-fashioned living, Grandpa makes fishing rods for the children in his workshop while Granny sets up a tent and bakes a birthday cake for David.... Tension arises when a bear comes into camp and eats David's cake.... A light, easy-going tale for early readers.""
