Sweet story about a little girl who gets her grandfather to spin tall tales about the origins of his various old-age features (pot belly, grey hair, wrinkles). I liked the comradely relationship of the grandfather & the grandchild, how he calls her "vaquera" ("cowgirl"), and the tall-tales aspect of the story.

Spanish sprinkled throughout, although the text is primarily in English. ( )

The book tells the story of a young girl asking her grandpa how he got his grey hair and other signs of old age. His grandfather tells her some very tall tales about how this happened. Cute and sometimes funny.
