Loved it!

Grandpa is in for a big surprise, war has been declared and he had no idea it was coming. A good story, a good moral theme of resolving differences yet being friendly while negotiations are ongoing. The solution was a great one because it involved communication and ideas from all parties.

I had lots of laughs.

5 & 7 year old boy approved

Listened to this twice while on a road trip with my boys. They both thought it was funny and it kept them interested during the drive. Story is told from the POV of a 10yr old boy, and was very sweet, relatable for my two.

I personally enjoyed the narration, and the story of a family in transition.

Highly recommend!
