Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A short book with many stories What happends is not as important as how it develpes. The dream that grandma, Lily Laceby, is dreaming has a story. The growing reaction of the dog, Butch Aggie is another story. Noises comning from outside the house is another story. The ending is another whole story as well. The layout is fantastic. The illustration is also warm and wonderful. It's a simple, short book with many stories.

Editorial Reviews

With "hair as wispy as cobwebs in ceilings," old Lily Laceby casts a wistful vote for eternal youth as she receives a gaggle of unexpected guests. Ages 3-7.
