Booklist - 10/15/2018 The latest in the Seasons with Grandad series (Snow?, 2015; Rain?, 2017; Sun, 2018) shows that days spent with Granddad build lasting memories. The whipping fall wind makes for a perfect day to fly a kite (“But we’ll have to find it first”). As they poke through closets, cabinets, and cartons, the boy and his grandpa unearth a cricket bat, a boat, and a telescope, and reminisce about the adventures they have had together in the past. At the park, the wind whooshes and whistles, lifting the pair into a fantastical sky among kites of every size and character. When the storm grows ominous, thunder and lightning propel them home for milk and cookies and final words: “The best adventure is an adventure shared.” Colorful ink-and-watercolor illustrations follow the wind’s swirling path as it pulls hair backward and trees downward, turns birds topsy-turvy, and causes a desperate Granddad to hang on to a trash can for dear life. Full-page spreads show details indoors and out—especially observant children will wonder at the dragon tail emerging from a puddle! - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
