The little girl and her grandfather spend a lot of time together. They look at the trains at the station and watch the animals in the zoo, they buy bread on the market and weed grandfather’s garden. But whatever they decide to do, the old man always notes: maybe this is the last time we do this.
But one summer’s day the little girl proposes to go swimming and finds out that this is grandfather’s first time and that he has never learnt how to swim!
A warmhearted, wonderfully illustrated picture book about the young and the old and the happiness that comes from being together.
