Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
"Being a raisin means you have a lot of wrinkles. Grandpa must have a kazillion." That is the assessment of Grandpa by a young whippersnapper of a grape. But the grape likes his grandfather, the raisin, just the way he is—wrinkles and all. In fact, he thinks Grandpa's wrinkles are awesome. This is a clever notion that very easily could have been overdone, but the authors carry it off with humor. The little grape marvels at the number of candles on Grandpa's birthday cake, as he realizes "Grandpa's so old that he's been allowed to cross the big street for more years than I can count." When a gregarious prune plops down next to Grandpa on a park bench, the young grape says, "Time to go, Grandpa. I need a nap." Grandpa appreciates the boy for saving him from the talkative lady. The story is actually one of a warm and loving family for, as Grandpa points out, they're from the same vine.
School Library Journal
PreS-Grandpa, a bespectacled wrinkly raisin, and his grandson, a plump round grape, share a day at the park. Similar to the author's The Day the Dog Dressed Like Dad (Bloomsbury, 2004), this title makes short observations on each page, such as "Grandpa teaches me about life's ups and downs"; the accompanying graphic shows the duo on a seesaw. Purple, green, blue, and orange dominate the unappealing color scheme in the old-fashioned-looking illustrations. This slight title won't attract a wide audience, and, read once, is unlikely to be requested a second time.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Nearly bursting with youthful vim-and adoration-a grape introduces his grandpa, who has a "kazillion" wrinkles and a story for each one. It's plainly a mutual admiration society, as the two take a walk to the park, crossing the "big street" hand in hand, talking and joking together ("He reminds me to stop and smell the flowers. I would forget that without him. I stop to smell my armpits. ‘Fresh and clean,' I say. ‘Very funny,' Grandpa says"), congratulating each other on how good a team they make: "We're from the same vine, after all!" Snair captures the energy of the small green narrator and his rumpled, purple, more sedate companion in thick, rough strokes, giving the pair inconspicuous limbs but big, expressive facial features. An engaging intergenerational portrait. (Picture book. 6-8)

    My children thoroughly enjoyed this book. As young grape spends time with his grandfather, raisin, they're both treated to some wonderful lessons. <BR/><BR/>"If I weren't here to be nervous, you might climb too high and fall," Grandpa Raisin cautions the tree-climbing Grape. <BR/><BR/>When Grape rescues grandpa from the talkative prune, the raisin kindly whispers, "You saved me again." <BR/><BR/>As grape says, at the end of the story, "When I'm a raisin, I want to be just like YOU--except king!" <BR/><BR/>A truly entertaining and thoughtful bedtime story.
