Overview

Bobby loved to be with his grandfather, Bob. They did so many things together. Then Bob suffered a stroke, and Bobby was frightened and confused until he realized that even though Bob couldn't move or talk, he knew what was happening around him.

And it was Bobby who began to help Bob with some of the things his grandfather had helped him to learn--how to eat by himself, to talk, and even to walk again.

In this companion volume to Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs, Tomie de Paola lovingly and perceptively explores the relationship between a child and his grandfather in a situation experienced by many families.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Bobby was named after his best friend, his grandfather, Bob," begins Tomie dePaola's heartwarming tale of the special relationship between grandchild and grandparent, Now One Foot, Now the Other (1981). The title refers to one of the boy's favorite stories: how Bob taught Bobby to walk. And after Bob has a stroke, it's Bobby's turn to help his grandfather relearn how to walk.
