Grandpa For Sale By: Dotti Enderle and Vicki Sansum Illustrated By: T. Kyle Gentry
Lizzie works in her family's antique shop, Oldman's Antiques. Her grandpa sometimes gets tired and sleeps on the settee. One day Mrs Larchmont comes in and decides that she cannot live without the antique, meaning Lizzie's grandfather, but no matter how much she is offered Lizzie cannot bear to part with him, which makes Mrs. Larchmont very angry. But makes Lizzie very happy.
I love this book. The illustrations make it a very special book to read. They are vivid and beautiful. I think that the story is also a wonderful one, that some people may think that money can buy anything, but they are terribly wrong.!
I bought this from Scholastic.
