A lovely book about a boy being overwhelmed by his grandmother's urban home. The watercolor illustrations beautifully capture how his opinion of the city changes as he comes to see it as she does.

Interesting story developed in autumn between a grandmother and her grandson. To learn about the city, city life and people. Colorful and vibrant illustrations.

This is a darling book! How scary a new environment can seem to a small child; what a great and creative Nana to find a way to exchange anxiety for curiosity. Loved it!
