Pop Pop's Magic Chairby David Russell, Frank Furlong
"Pop Pop's Magic Chair" is the true story of writer David Russell's relationship with his grandson Aaron from birth to about age six. They were years filled with weekend sleepovers and vacation stays that not onlymade his grandparents feel young again, but established a pattern of Aaron climbing into Pop-Pop's lap to "read" together. Starting with picture books, they worked theirway through fairy tales, then story books, continuing right up into National Geographic's.
"Pop-Pops Magic Chair" brings the highlights of their relationship to life in picture book form, with an added touch of fairy dust to give the story a bit more sense of wonder. "Pop-Pop" is intended to be both a bedtime read for kids 4 to 6 and a self-read for ages 6 to 8.
Visually, the story is graced with delightful illustrations drawn by Frank Furlong, in a style reminiscent of his many years of drawing TV Cartoons.
