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.

Fun for the whole family. Mom, Dad, Nadia age 10 and Peter age 6 all fell in love with the story. Very entertaining and well read.
