by David McKee
A sweet story about the relationship between a grandfather and grandson and about the inside jokes and shared memories that make a family. Bentzr, the beloved patchwork elephant, embarks on a trip to visit his aging grandpa, Eldo. After bringing him his favorite food, Bentzi asks Grandpa Eldo if he remembers all the fun things they did the last time they were together. Their adventures include playing tricks on each other, skipping rocks, and telling stories. McKee's illustrations are as colorful and carefree as his story line, though adult readers will pick up the more nuanced theme of an aging grandparent's memory.
