What did happen to Grandpa? In a wild and raucous and humorous epic journey, the two boys discover and learn the true value or family and friendship.
The book according to Williams, is a fictitious work he intends to dedicate to readers of all ages. It is a glorious retelling of life back in the 40's based from the author's own experiences. Though highly juvenile in presentation, it reflects the many aspects of life that many adults, due to constant haste, fail to realize. More importantly, the story highlights the wonder of creative imagination and spurs the children's curiosity for little adventures of their own.
A Novel for all ages. Youngsters will love this book for its never ending mystery and adventure. This book will stimulate the imagination. Mature readers will realize many things relating to their own childhood and be drawn into the story.
