Descriere

Lucy and her grandfather are the focus of this poignant and warm story that teaches that wrinkles are badges of happiness rather than signs of age. Lucy asks Granddad, “Why doesn't your skin fit you? It’s all crinkly,” to which he replies, “Those crinkles are called wrinkles,” each of which he got when he smiled especially big. As Lucy traces Granddad’s joy-filled face, he describes his memories and shares the cause of each line—his wedding day, Lucy’s mother’s birth, precious moments from her childhood, and Lucy’s birth, among others. Beautiful drawings recreate each thoughtful memory, and the recollections showcase an intimate bond between the two generations.

Despre autor

Seth is a young apprentice wizard asked to undertake a perilous mission to rescue a princess held captive by the sorcerer Mordlon. Armed with some enchanted objects, and in the company of his best friend Mim, he journeys into Mordlon’s dominion and confronts the powers of darkness. Dealing with skeleton warriors, wraiths and orcs is bad enough, but Seth soon discovers that the magic objects meant to make his task easier can be downright dangerous. Using shrinking mushrooms in particular lands him in trouble time and again. Urged on by Mim, Seth learns that being brave is only part of the battle. Having faith in himself is just as important.

    In my opinion, this was an excellent book. I liked this book for two reasons. First, I liked the characters in the story. The grandfather was a very interesting character. He was very believable and well-developed because of explanations to his granddaughter. I liked how he told the granddaughter that the wrinkles had happy memories instead of just telling her that they came with his older age. For example, he said that one wrinkle came from the day that he got married to his wife. He said that the wrinkle came out when he smiled very big from being happy. A second thing I liked about this book was the illustrations. The book did a very good job of including helpful illustrations that enhanced the story. One example is when the grandfather tells the granddaughter that his wrinkle comes from his happiness on the day her mother was born. The illustration shows this because on the following two pages, there is a large picture of the mother?s birth. Overall, the big idea of this story is appreciation of life. The grandfather effectively portrays the message that there are many positive things that happen in your life that stick with you for as long as you live.
