Papa Dan and his granddaughters, Alba and Ivy, spend the day doing their favorite things, starting with a ride in the wheelbarrow (along with Bazil the Dog) to Papa Dan's fairylike garden. As a storm blows in and baking ensues, Papa Dan saves the day when the smoke detector shrills. Exhausted, Papa Dan decides to take a nap, but this does not keep the girls from having even more fun.
This book is a blend of real life and fiction, honoring Dan Stoecklein (a.k.a. Papa Dan). He will forever be remembered as a loving son, husband, father, and grandfather--and for his manager's specials, of course. He lived his life with purpose, loved to garden, and shared what he cultivated with family and friends.
