Boring book. Let me re-iterate, very boring book.

An extremely moving story told with unsentimental prose and eloquent pencil drawings.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679865705, Paperback)

"Austin's visit to his grandmother's is the first since Grandpa died. Austin notices Grandpa's things but feels the emptiness of his absence. This spare story vividly captures the emotions of painful times and shows how they ease with sharing and remembering. Boy and grandfather were close, but boy and grandmother seem destined to be just as close, with Grandpa's memory to bind them. Poignant and perceptive, this has impressive resonance, and readers won't easily shed its warm afterglow."--(starred) Booklist.
